Title
(EN) Non-autonomous steering modes
Abstract
(EN)

A computer is programmed to detect a request to steer a host vehicle. The computer is further programmed to determine a steering angle of the host vehicle. The computer is further programmed to send a notification to select one of a first non-autonomous steering mode and a second non-autonomous steering mode. The computer is further programmed to detect a selection of one of the first and second non-autonomous steering modes. The computer is further programmed to steer the host vehicle according to the selected mode and signals received from a user device.
