  • Publication number: 20170320397
    Abstract: A method for recognizing an over-temperature in a region of a charging socket of a motor vehicle without a temperature sensor. A temperature value is detected by means of a temperature sensor at an installation location of the temperature sensor that is different from the region. At least one configuration value of a current operating configuration in which the charging socket is operated is determined, and then a temperature reading for the region without the temperature sensor is generated by means of a characteristic map, which is designed for the purpose of including the temperature value and the at least one configuration value as input variables and of assigning the temperature reading to these input variables.

  • Patent number: 8226530
    Abstract: A method controls an automated dual clutch transmission of a motor vehicle. An actuating device, preferably arranged in the region of a steering wheel, for selecting the gear step of the shift transmission, which actuating device has a first and a second actuating element which, when actuated individually, cause an upshift or downshift of the shift transmission and, when actuated simultaneously, transfer the shift transmission into an idling state. When both actuating elements are actuated simultaneously, the force-transmitting clutch remains closed and consequently the selected gear remains engaged, and at the same time a clutch torque and/or an engine torque and, consequently, a drive torque acting on a driven wheel is reduced to approximately 0 Nm. It is thereby possible to tie up the force transmission again especially quickly after the termination of the idling state.
