  • Publication number: 20210114604
    Abstract: A method for determining information related to a lane change of a target vehicle includes obtaining information related to an environment of the target vehicle. The information related to the environment relates to a plurality of features of the environment of the target vehicle. The plurality of features are partitioned into two or more groups of features. The method further determines two or more weighting factors for the two or more groups of features. An attention mechanism is used for determining the two or more weighting factors. The method further determines the information related to the lane change of the target vehicle based on the information related to the environment of the target vehicle using a machine-learning network. A weighting of the plurality of features of the environment of the target vehicle within the machine-learning network is based on the two or more weighting factors for the two or more groups of features.

  • Publication number: 20210086774
    Abstract: In a method for driving maneuver assistance of a vehicle, a predefined neural network is provided, which is designed to determine whether a predefined driving maneuver is probably possible. A predefined driver model is provided, which is designed to predict a probable future behavior of a vehicle. A current driving situation of the vehicle is determined. Depending on the determined driving situation, the driver model and the neural network, it is determined whether a predefined driving maneuver is possible. Depending on the determination as to whether the driving maneuver is possible, a driver assistance function for the driving maneuver is carried out and/or the driving maneuver is carried out autonomously.
