  • Patent number: 10002525
    Abstract: A method and device for the remote control of a function of a vehicle is disclosed. Images of the vehicle are recorded by a camera which is integrated in the mobile control unit. A visual signal is generated at a predetermined position on the vehicle, where remote control is only enabled if the visual signal is recorded by the camera. The device for the remote control of a function of a vehicle includes a mobile control unit with an integrated camera to record the images of the vehicle. A signal generation unit is arranged at a predetermined position on the vehicle for the generation of a visual signal and the vehicle includes a function unit for the control of the function. The function unit is formed in such a way that remote control is only enabled when the visual signal is recorded by the camera.

  • Publication number: 20180154750
    Abstract: A roof for a motor vehicle is disclosed. The roof has a cover element which can be moved in the longitudinal direction of the vehicle between a closed position and at least one open position and a wind deflector which is arranged on a front edge of the roof opening and which can be moved between a retracted position and at least one extended position. The cover element is wider than the wind deflector. At least one wind deflecting element is arranged on both sides outside the wind deflector. In an extended position, the respective wind deflecting element can be exposed in the manner of an ascending ramp or inclined plane towards the rear in the direction of the cover element arranged in the open position such that lateral, outer partial regions of the cover element are covered towards the front by the respective wind deflecting elements.

  • Publication number: 20180149213
    Abstract: A method for controlling a positive gearshift unit is disclosed. In an engagement procedure, a coupling element, which is connected to a first coupling half and which has a beveled coupling toothing, is brought into engagement with a blocking element, which has a blocking toothing and which is connected to a second coupling half, and is brought into engagement with a catch element, which is connected to the second coupling half, which has a beveled catch toothing, and which is able to move circumferentially with respect to the blocking element. In the engagement procedure, a touch-point is set which comes after a crossing of a synchronous rotational speed in a rotational speed difference profile.
