This paper presents the software architecture of an electronic copilot whose purpose is to give an appropriate support to the driver in all traffic situations. The objective is to increase the driver possibilities to take the right decision in a dynamic environment. Furthermore, the information presented to the driver must be carefully selected depending on the current traffic situation. After a global description of the copilot functioiial architecture, we present the Dynamic Data Mariager in

This work takes place in the europeau Prometheus P r e A r t project and will be integrated in a vehicle prototype called Prolab2 This french demonstrator integrates the works of nine research laboratories and two cars coinpanies PSA and RENAULT.
