W O 20 17 / 1468 15 Al (54) Title: INTENTION SIGNALING FOR AN AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE FIG. 1 (57) Abstract: An intention signaling system for an autonomous vehicle (AV) can monitor sensor information indicating a situation- al environment of the AV, and detect an external entity based, at least in part, on the sensor data. The intention signaling system can generate an output to signal one of an intent of the AV or an acquiescence of the AV to the external entity.
