  • Publication number: 20200164871
    Abstract: The invention relates to a lane change assistance system in a vehicle (21), wherein the lane change assistance system has a sensor arrangement for detecting the current surrounding area of the vehicle in each case and is designed to generate a warning signal and/or steering intervention when an imminent lane change by the vehicle is identified, depending on a second vehicle (25) being detected by the sensor arrangement in the vehicle's surrounding area. In this case the lane change assistance system is designed to suppress generation of the warning signal and/or the steering intervention based on map data (15), particularly when the change of lane by the vehicle is to a newly opening lane (23) of a multiple lane road (22) which is branching off (e.g. of a corresponding motorway exit) and the second vehicle is located in another lane (24) of the road (22) which is branching off.

  • Publication number: 20190225211
    Abstract: A rearwardly directed movement of a first vehicle that has a driving assistance system can be controlled, the driving assistance system having at least one sensor and a control device, in which threshold values for triggering a warning intervention and/or braking intervention in respect of the interval in relation to at least one further road user are set, and additionally being connected to or having a camera, by which activated travel-direction indicators of a further road user are recognized, which travel-direction indicators are included in the calculation of a probable trajectory of the further road user, and a probability of a collision is calculated, according to which the threshold values are lowered or raised.

  • Publication number: 20050215335
    Abstract: The invention relates to a position detector (3) for a method of motion analysis, especially for golf training. It is proposed that the position detector (3) be detachably mounted on a ball sport device (2) and then receive and transmit at least one position signal for the determination of the spatial position and/or the alignment of the ball sport device (2). Furthermore, the invention includes a method of motion analysis by using the position detector according to the invention.
