A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11919513B2) discloses a control system designed to provide assistance to a vehicle occupant. The system includes one or more controllers that receive vehicle parameters and image data from an external imaging device. By determining a vehicle trajectory based on the parameters, the system generates a composite image sequence with trajectory indicators that visually represent the predicted path of the vehicle. These indicators move within the sequence to create the illusion of the vehicle traversing the path, enhancing the occupant's visual experience. The system utilizes electronic processors and memory devices to execute instructions for generating the composite image sequence.

Furthermore, the patent details a method for providing assistance to a vehicle occupant by receiving vehicle parameters and image data, determining a vehicle trajectory, and creating a composite image sequence with trajectory indicators. These indicators move within the sequence based on the vehicle's distance traveled, giving the occupant a sense of movement over the predicted path. Additionally, the patent covers a non-transitory computer-readable medium with instructions for executing the method and processors specifically configured to perform the method. Overall, the patented technology aims to enhance the visual experience of vehicle occupants by providing a dynamic representation of the vehicle's trajectory through composite image sequences.
