  • Publication number: 20030120401
    Abstract: 1. Control system for a vehicle and a method for controlling a vehicle.
    Type: Application
    Filed: July 8, 2002
    Publication date: June 26, 2003

  • Publication number: 20030060951
    Abstract: A method and a device for handling errors of software modules for redundantly designed systems in vehicles in order to optimize error handling for redundantly designed systems in vehicles, so that errors are detected and error handling measures are introduced. In addition, error handling is configured in such a way that it can be used for a plurality of software-controlled applications that run on a control device. Furthermore, a device for performing the method uses direct and/or indirect redundant input data to determine the adjusted input data for the software modules.

  • Publication number: 20030050741
    Abstract: In a method for the avoidance of rollover phenomena in semitrailers with the emission of warning signals for the driver of the vehicle when driving inappropriately, the center of gravity of the load of the semitrailer is calculated in an on-board computer. From the center of gravity thus determined and the known weight of the loaded semitrailer, the on-board computer calculates a rollover limit as a function of instantaneous driving parameters, on exceeding of which limit a warning is issued to the driver of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20030033069
    Abstract: A method for operating an electronically actuated drive train in a motor vehicle includes the steps of determining drive control signals for actuating a drive unit and gearbox control signals for actuating a manual gearbox from a power request of the driver of the vehicle, providing a predefined or predefinable driving style which can be selected from a range from minimum energy or fuel consumption up to maximum power output, taking the driving style into account in the determination of the drive control signals and the gearbox control signals, taking the local position of the motor vehicle into account in the determination of the drive control signals and the gearbox control signals.

  • Publication number: 20020125861
    Abstract: A device with a starter-generator for internal combustion engines, the combustion engine having a centrifugal mass for stabilizing its smoothness of running, with at least one first nonpositive clutch and a flywheel generator, which can be actuated by means of an electrical energy source and is in effective connection with a selectable gearbox, the nonpositive clutch being provided between the flywheel generator, which can be actuated by means of an electrical energy source, and the combustion engine, and the flywheel generator forming the centrifugal mass of the combustion engine.
