Vehicle Control Warning


'Vehicle Control Warning' monitors areas around the vehicle and provides warnings to a driver so the driver can take action to recover and maintain safe control of the vehicle. It includes lateral warning systems that warn of lane departures and obstacles or vehicles to the sides of the vehicle and longitudinal warning systems that monitor areas in the vehicle path and provide warnings when headways are insufficient or obstacles are detected in front of or behind the vehicle. It includes on-board sensors, including radars and imaging systems, and the driver information system that provides the visual, audible, and/or haptic warnings to the driver.

This functional object is included in the "Vehicle" physical object.

This functional object is mapped to the following Functional View PSpecs:


# Requirement
01 The vehicle shall monitor the area to the sides of the vehicle to determine the proximity of other objects to the vehicle and if a warning is needed.
02 The vehicle shall evaluate the likelihood of a collision between two vehicles or a vehicle and a stationary object to warn the driver, based on the proximity of other objects to the vehicle, roadway characteristics, and the current speed and direction of the vehicle.
03 The vehicle shall provide position warnings to the driver when an object gets close enough to the vehicle to become a hazard if no action is taken by the driver.
04 The vehicle shall present vehicle control warnings information to the driver in audible or visual forms without impairing the driver's ability to control the vehicle in a safe manner.
05 The vehicle shall provide warnings to the driver based on information received from other vehicles regarding potentially hazardous road conditions or road hazards.
06 The vehicle shall receive emergency vehicle location information.
07 The vehicle shall notify the Driver of the presence of emergency vehicles nearby that may affect the host vehicle.
08 The vehicle shall provide warnings to the driver based upon warnings received from nearby special vehicles.
09 The vehicle shall collect location and motion data from the vehicle platform.
10 The Vehicle shall provide its location with lane-level accuracy to on-board warning applications.
11 The vehicle shall determine the trajectory of the host vehicle.
12 The vehicle shall determine if a crash between the host vehicle and a remote vehicle is imminent.
13 The vehicle shall determine if approaching vehicles are of type motorcycle.
14 The vehicle shall provide warnings to the driver that a motorcycle is approaching the driverís vehicle.
15 The vehicle shall acquire the current location and motion of remote vehicles to determine any slow moving vehicles which the host vehicle is approaching.
