A newly filed patent (Publication Number: US20240034256A1) outlines a method and system for personalizing vehicle settings based on a driver's preferences. The method involves creating a driver profile, receiving information about the driver operating different vehicles, establishing communication links with the vehicles, and adjusting configuration settings to match the driver's preferences. The system includes a processor and memory to execute these functions, ensuring a seamless transition of personalized settings between vehicles. Additionally, the patent describes the inclusion of driver-specific trip summary information in the driver profile, which can be used for driver rewards based on positive driving behaviors over time.

Furthermore, the patent details a method for translating adjusted configuration settings between different vehicles operated by the same driver. By receiving information about the driver's operation of multiple vehicles, establishing communication links with the driver's mobile computing device, and utilizing mappings between vehicle configuration settings, the system can effectively translate and adjust settings to match the driver's preferences across different vehicles. This innovative approach aims to enhance the driving experience by ensuring consistency in personalized settings regardless of the vehicle being used, ultimately providing a more convenient and tailored driving experience for the driver.
