The granted patent (Publication Number: US11889010B2) discloses a computer-implemented method for generating contact recommendations for a vehicle communication apparatus in a high cognitive load environment. The method involves determining a distance between current parameters and parameters associated with vehicle contact events, generating contact recommendations based on this distance, and allocating values to parameters by grouping them based on days of the week and time of day. The distance calculation is defined by specific expressions and involves comparing parameter values to generate recommendations.

Furthermore, the patent describes a vehicle communication apparatus designed for high cognitive load environments, comprising a memory device, control device, and output device. The control device determines distances between current and event parameters, generates contact recommendations based on a weighted combination of these parameters, and outputs recommendations to the user. The apparatus also includes a communication unit for wireless communication with a mobile device, allowing data on vehicle contact events to be received from the mobile device. Additionally, the patent covers a vehicle equipped with this communication apparatus, emphasizing its practical application in real-world settings.
