  • Publication number: 20220332347
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method of driving a motor vehicle. The method determines position data relating to at least one of a current position or a predicted future position of the motor vehicle detecting, using at least one sensor device, surroundings data relating to a surrounding environment of the motor vehicle, determining at least one driving intervention based on the surroundings data, and controlling at least one vehicle system of the motor vehicle to execute the determined at least one driving intervention. The at least one driving intervention executed by a selected software module that is selected based on the surroundings data, and the selected software module is selected from a plurality of software modules based on the position data. Each software module is configured to execute the at least one driving intervention.

  • Publication number: 20220308910
    Abstract: A motor vehicle includes a vehicle computer, a detection unit, an evaluation unit and a removable data storage. Detection of a motor-vehicle-related activation event causes operating system installation data stored on the data storage unit as a virtual machine to be loaded by the vehicle computer unit and the virtual machine is started. Detection of a vehicle-related deactivation event causes operating system installation data describing a current operating system state of the virtual machine to be transmitted to the data storage and/or a storage device of the vehicle computer by the vehicle computer.

  • Publication number: 20220198844
    Abstract: The invention relates to a system for determining the tire condition of a vehicle tire in a vehicle, said system comprising a number of sensors, which detect measurement values (m1, m2, m3) relevant to the tire condition, and a device for recording data and transmitting data, said device having a signal connection to the sensors on the input side. According to the invention, the signal output of the device has a preferably wireless signal connection to a readout unit, and the device generates actual tire parameters on the basis of the detected measurement values (m1, m2, m3) and directs said actual tire parameters to the readout unit.

  • Patent number: 10990103
    Abstract: A method for operating a vehicle system of a motor vehicle is disclosed. The method is designed to determine a trajectory to be followed and/or to perform driving interventions, wherein a communication device on the vehicle system side receives, from a computation device external to the motor vehicle, a lane map describing travel lanes that are determined by the computation device from actual driving courses of other vehicles in the past and that relate to a region surrounding the motor vehicle, and a control device on the vehicle system side determines a trajectory to be followed by the motor vehicle and/or performs a transverse guiding intervention depending on the lane map.

  • Publication number: 20190346845
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for autonomously guiding a motor vehicle. The method includes receiving a reference trajectory, by means of which a continuous sequence of steering maneuvers, acceleration maneuvers, or braking maneuvers is determined for a route to be traveled by the motor vehicle. The method also includes detecting data on the surroundings via a detection device of the motor vehicle, and checking the navigability of the reference trajectory on the basis of the data on the surroundings. The method further includes generating a driving trajectory by correcting the reference trajectory on the basis of the data on the surroundings, and guiding the motor vehicle autonomously along the driving trajectory via a control device of the motor vehicle. In order to enable a particularly anticipatory planning of the driving trajectory, the reference trajectory is used, which is configured independent of the data on the surroundings.
