(EN) DRIVER INFORMATION SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR A VEHICLE CAPABLE OF DRIVING IN AN AUTONOMOUS DRIVING MODE
(FR) SYSTÈME D'INFORMATION DE CONDUCTEUR ET PROCÉDÉ POUR UN VÉHICULE POUVANT SE DÉPLACER DANS UN MODE DE CONDUITE AUTONOME
Abstract
(EN) A driver information system (10) for a vehicle (1) comprises a data storing unit (12) which stores road characteristics data associated with a plurality of road sections (221, 222) which are each designated as having been used multiple times by the vehicle (1) for driving in at least two past time instances, a determination unit (11) which determines a first status of the vehicle (1) indicative of whether the vehicle is in an autonomous driving mode or in a manual driving mode, and determines a second status of a road section (221) of the plurality of road sections, which is ahead of the vehicle (1) in the driving direction, being indicative of whether the road section (221) is appropriate or inappropriate for the autonomous driving mode, and a driver information unit (11) which provides a notification (60) to the driver indicative of a switch to manual driving mode if the determination unit (11) determines that the vehicle (1) is in the autonomous driving mode and the second status indicates that the road section (221) is inappropriate for autonomous driving mode. The driver information unit (11) provides the notification (60) to the driver in advance of an event (31) at which the vehicle (1) is expected to reach the road section (221) with the notification (60) including information of at least one of a distance (602) and time period (601) until the event (31) at which the vehicle (1) is expected to reach the road section (221).
