In the motor vehicle, there is constant interaction between the driver and the vehicle. In the simplest case, the driver is informed about the driving status via instruments. When driving at night, the need for such interaction increases. This raises the question of the extent to which the driver must be actively involved and the extent to which automatic systems, such as the control of lighting systems, can relieve the driver. Another question is how the necessary information is presented. In short, how much information is useful and how much is a burden, what should be automated to support the driver, and how can the driver be made aware of safety-relevant events.
