3.2.2–Provide Automatic Vehicle Operations Control (Pspec*)This process shall be responsible for providing the facility that enables vehicles to operate in automatic vehicle operations lanes. This mode of operation shall only be initiated by the process when a request is received from the driver via other processes in the vehicle. The first action of the process must be to send data to the process that provides the automated lane check-in facility. If a positive response is received from that process, i.e., the vehicle's check in is accepted, then the process shall enable automatic operation by sending the data to the vehicle control processes. Once the vehicle is in automatic operation, the process shall continuously monitor for an input from the driver that cancels automatic mode, and when this is received, send mode canceling data to the vehicle control processes. Similarly the process shall also continuously monitor input from the process analyzing vehicle condition and the vehicle's presence on an automated lane. The process shall send mode canceling data to the vehicle control processes, if the condition does not support automated lane operation, or the vehicle is no longer on an automated lane. Finally, the process shall continuously monitor the detailed lane change strategy input from the process providing automated lane changing within a work zone.
