Title
(EN) Traffic situation awareness for an autonomous vehicle
Abstract
(EN)

The disclosure includes embodiments for providing traffic situation awareness for a driver of an autonomous vehicle. In some embodiments, the autonomous vehicle is a highly autonomous vehicle (HAV). A method implemented by the HAV includes, according to some embodiments, analyzing external sensor data recorded by one or more external sensors of the HAV to identify a traffic situation. The external sensor data describes one or more measurements of a physical environment external to the HAV. The method includes generating graphical data describing visual feedback that visually depicts information describing the traffic situation. The method includes providing the graphical data to an interface device to cause the interface device to display the visual feedback. The interface device is communicatively coupled to the HAV and operable to receive the graphical data from the processor of the HAV. The visual feedback provides the traffic situation awareness to the driver of the HAV.
