  • Publication number: 20220161889
    Abstract: A method for carrying out autonomous braking in a two-wheeled motor vehicle, where the necessity of vehicle deceleration is detected with the aid of a surround sensor system. When vehicle deceleration is necessary, prior to its execution, a test braking action independent of a rider and of a predefined temporal length is carried out. During or after the execution of the test braking action, a rider readiness variable characterizing the readiness of the rider to master the vehicle deceleration detected as necessary is ascertained. After completion of the test braking action, the vehicle deceleration is initiated, the time characteristic of the vehicle deceleration being a function of the rider readiness variable.

  • Publication number: 20210347343
    Abstract: A method for carrying out an autonomous brake application in a two-wheel motor vehicle. In the method, the need for a vehicle deceleration is detected with the aid of a surroundings sensor system; depending thereon, a driver-independent vehicle deceleration is initiated; once the vehicle deceleration has been initiated, a driver readiness variable characterizing the readiness of the driver to control the vehicle deceleration maneuver is ascertained; and the temporal progression of the vehicle deceleration is continued depending on the driver readiness variable.

  • Publication number: 20210268982
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for monitoring a motorcycle. Based on the acceleration-relevant data, a vehicle motion and a vehicle position in three-dimensional space are estimated. The vehicle position in space is analyzed and is evaluated as a normal or a critical riding state. A detection direction of a sensor unit is predefined in such a way that in an upright normal resting position of the motorcycle the detection direction lies in a horizontal plane, and the detected acceleration-relevant data encompass a first acceleration component in a longitudinal vehicle direction and a second acceleration component in a transverse vehicle direction. A riding state evaluated as critical is plausibilized with the estimated vehicle motion in order to recognize a critical resting position after an accident. An emergency call is generated when a critical resting position after an accident is recognized.

  • Publication number: 20210114568
    Abstract: A method for preventing a forward flip-over or a flip-over about the vehicle transverse axis of a single-track motor vehicle, during a braking action of its front wheel. In the method, a lift-off indicator parameter is ascertained, which represents the flip-over hazard by a rear wheel at risk of lifting off or already having lifted off the ground surface, and the braking force at the front wheel is reduced as a function thereof to prevent a flip-over.
