  • Patent number: 11403854
    Abstract: An operating assistance method for a working device or for a vehicle. Object boxes for an object in a field of view of the working device are obtained at consecutive times. From object boxes of a given object, for images recorded in succession or direct succession, an instantaneous change of scale of an object box for the specific object, and an instantaneous lateral change of position of the object box for the specific object, are determined. An object box predicted in the future is determined from the current change of scale, and from the instantaneous lateral change in position for an object box for a specific object. The position of the predicted object box and/or the ratio of a lateral extension of the predicted object box to a lateral extension of a covered field of view and/or of the recorded images are determined and evaluated.
