Title: DRIVING MODE SWITCHING CONTROL DEVICE, METHOD, AND PROGRAM
Abstract:
The present invention presents the following countermeasure, with the purpose of preventing switching to a manual driving mode and allowing a driver to sense a switch to an automatic driving mode. When switching a driving mode of a vehicle between a manual driving mode and an automatic driving mode, this driving mode switching control device receives a switching request to switch the manual driving mode to the automatic driving mode. On the basis of the received switching request, the driving mode switching control device outputs a first switching signal to switch the manual driving mode to the automatic driving mode, and outputs steering wheel operation instructions to disengage a link between a steering wheel and tires of the vehicle and cause the steering wheel to operate independently from the orientation of the tires.
