Lyft's patent of a communication system for self-driving cars with nearby humans (4/7)

The patent document describes how the self-driving cars might communicate with those around them in future. 

One image shows a car displaying the intended passenger’s name as it approaches them while another depicts a self-driving car notifying a pedestrian that it’s safe to walk in front of the car.

 The patent also includes images showing a self-driving car letting another vehicle know it’s yielding and informing a cyclist that it’s safe to pass.
