Abstract

A control system 7100 and method for a vehicle 10 operable in an autonomous fashion comprises one or more controllers 7110. The control system is configured to receive a first request signal, a first availability signal and a second availability signal. The first request signal is indicative of a request for the vehicle to navigate to a primary navigation goal in an autonomous mode. The first availability signal is indicative of an availability of the primary navigation goal for the vehicle (10). The second availability signal is indicative of an availability of a secondary navigation goal for the vehicle. The one or more controllers, upon receipt of the first request signal and the first availability signal, output a first notification signal to notify a user of the vehicle of an unavailability of the primary navigation goal. The one or more controllers, upon receipt of the second availability signal, subsequently output a second notification signal to notify the user of the availability of the secondary navigation goal for the vehicle. The control system is configured to then cause the host vehicle to navigate to the secondary navigation goal instead of the primary navigation goal in the autonomous mode.
