Conduct-by-Wire is a vehicle guidance paradigm, which investigates the possibility of controlling an automobile by maneuver commands. The focus of this paper is to show one possible interaction strategy for maneuver-based vehicle guidance between driver and vehicle by means of discrete maneuvers. Therefore, the paper starts with a short introduction to the advantages of maneuver-based vehicle guidance and proceeds to the current design option for maneuver-based driver-vehicle interaction chosen by the TU Darmstadt. This includes the presentation of the user interface as well as the basic assumptions for maneuver-based interaction. This paper is finished by a specific example for the maneuver “Lane Change right”, which includes system behavior, as well as, information displaying and some restricting facts which are presented together with possible countermeasures.
