With increasing levels of automation on modern vehicles, drivers need more knowledge about their vehicle than ever before. Thereby, the display of vehicle status and alerts are important means for safe and effective use. Nevertheless, there are currently no common and consistent ways of providing such status in-formation to drivers. This is different from other domains where stand-ardized alert management structure are common such as in modern aviation. In current vehicles, initiation, use, and termination of automated driving assistance differs considerably between vehicle models and brands and require special learning ex-periences by the driver and alerts are not priori-tized and harmonized across the various onboard systems. With higher levels of automation such complexity is expected to increase enormously. To address this problem, we propose a common taxonomy of vehicle display status and alerting terminology that is based on flight deck regulations in aviation and propose simple principles for their use in a man-aged display status and alerting system.
