SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR COMMUNICATING A BLENDING PARAMETER - A simplified explanation of the abstract
- This abstract for appeared for US patent application number 17715566 Titled 'SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR COMMUNICATING A BLENDING PARAMETER'
This abstract describes a system and method for communicating a blending parameter in a vehicle. The blending parameter indicates the degree to which control of the vehicle is shared between the driver and an advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS). The method involves obtaining the blending parameter and using a psychophysical model to determine a feedback parameter. This feedback parameter is then used to provide sensory feedback through the steering apparatus of the vehicle, in a way that is perceived to be proportional to the blending parameter.
Original Abstract Submitted
System, methods, and other embodiments described herein relate to communicating a blending parameter. In one embodiment, a method includes obtaining a blending parameter that is indicative of a degree to which control of a vehicle is shared between an operator of the vehicle and an advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) of the vehicle. The method further includes determining a feedback parameter based upon the blending parameter and a psychophysical model, wherein the psychophysical model optimizes a relationship between the blending parameter and the feedback parameter such that sensory feedback based upon the feedback parameter is perceived to be proportional to the blending parameter. The method further includes causing a feedback modality of a steering apparatus of the vehicle to provide the sensory feedback based upon the feedback parameter.
