Title
(EN) Vehicle route control
Abstract
(EN)

An apparatus includes a processor configured to send detour instructions defining a travel path that avoids a location of the traffic event. The detour instructions may be sent responsive to receiving notification of a traffic event. The processor is further configured to update the detour instructions to alter the travel path based on the proposed vehicle routes such that autonomous vehicles operate to follow the altered travel path. The update may be responsive to proposed vehicle routes different than the travel path received from vehicles in a vicinity of the location.
