Application: Vehicle nudge via c-v2x (Patent ID: US20230413026A1)

Qualcomm Inc. has filed a patent for techniques that involve utilizing vehicle nudge information through V2X communication links. The method includes detecting a roadway gap near a vehicle, generating a nudge message based on this gap, and transmitting the message. The nudge message can be an enhanced roadside safety message or a traffic flow streamlining message, and can be transmitted through various means such as from a roadside unit, cellular base station, or even from one vehicle to another.

The patent also covers a method for responding to a nudge message, which involves providing basic safety messages, receiving the nudge message, and executing a vehicle response based on the nudge message. The response can include detecting a roadway gap using onboard sensors, providing alerts to the vehicle operator, or presenting visual, audio, or haptic responses in the vehicle. Additionally, the patent includes an apparatus with memory, transceiver, and processor to detect roadway gaps, generate nudge messages, and transmit them. The apparatus can also receive basic safety messages, image information, and can be used in various vehicles to transmit nudge messages to others or respond to received nudge messages.
