Automated steering maneuvers have the potential to further reduce collisions in automobile traffic. High torques on the steering wheel and steer-by-wire are two concepts to prevent unwanted interference by the human driver during such maneuvers. Yet both methods lack controllability required by regulations in case of a false alarm, which is required by regulations. This paper tackles the problem of controllability by structuring the process of overriding a maneuver. Six chronological elements are presented which open up new specific research areas each. Research so far is sorted into this process and possible future research is evaluated for each element.
