DEVICE FOR SIGNALLING DRIVING PHASE(S) OF AN AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE

By | September 28, 2018

A signalling device (DS) equips a vehicle (VA) that can be driven by a driver during a manual driving phase and that comprises an assistance device (DA) capable of driving it in a completely autonomous manner during an autonomous driving phase. This device (DS) comprises signalling means (MS1-MS2) capable of being installed on at least two lateral parts (PL1-PL2) of the vehicle (VA) and of generating a first light of a first chosen colour, visible from outside the vehicle (VA), upon reception of a first command, and control means (MC) capable of generating the first command for said signalling means (MS1-MS2) when the vehicle (VA) is in an autonomous driving phase. Moreover, the signalling means (MS1-MS2) are capable of generating a second light of a second chosen colour, visible from outside the vehicle (VA), upon reception of a second command, and the control means (MC) are capable of generating the first command when the driver is absent from the vehicle (VA), and of generating the second command for the signalling means (MS1-MS2) when the vehicle (VA) is in an autonomous driving phase and the driver is present in the vehicle (VA), or of generating the first command when said driver is present in said vehicle (VA), and of generating a second command for the signalling means (MS1-MS2) when the vehicle (VA) is in an autonomous driving phase and the driver is absent from said vehicle (VA).
