Title: CONFIGURABLE USER INTERFACE METHOD AND APPARATUS
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to a configurable user interface for a vehicle (V). The configurable user interface includes a plurality of control devices for controlling a first set of vehicle systems (S-n). The control devices are each associated with at least one of the vehicle systems (S-n) in said first set. At least one processor is provided for identifying a subset of the first set of vehicle systems (S-n) consisting of the vehicle system(s) (S-n) installed on the vehicle (V). A memory is connected to the at least one processor. The at least one processor is configured to enable any of said control devices associated with the vehicle systems (S-n) contained in said subset; and/or to disable any of said control devices associated with the vehicle systems (S-n) not contained in said subset. The present disclosure also relates to a steering wheel of a vehicle (V) incorporating a configurable user interface. A vehicle (V) and a method of configuring a user interface are also disclosed.
