Title
(EN) Non-autonomous steering modes
Abstract
(EN) A computer detects a request to steer a host vehicle and a current steering angle of the host vehicle (step 210). The computer sends a notification to select one of a first non-autonomous steering mode (for example moving a steering wheel) and a second non-autonomous steering mode, for example using a virtual steering wheel on a touch screen (step 220), and detects a selection of one of the first and second non-autonomous steering modes (step 225). The host vehicle is then steered according to the selected mode and signals received from a user device. Typically, if the current steering angle is unavailable (step 215), the vehicle continues to steer in an autonomous or semi-autonomous steering mode.
