  • Publication number: 20220135033
    Abstract: A method for automatically setting a speed-control or proximity-control system of a two-wheeled motor vehicle. In the method, it is ascertained if the two-wheeled motor vehicle is on a group ride with at least one other two-wheeled motor vehicle; and in the event of a group ride, the speed-control or proximity-control system is switched to a special operating mode.

  • Publication number: 20220073071
    Abstract: A method for selecting the target object for an automatic distance control of a single-track motor vehicle. The presence of a second single-track motor vehicle preceding directly in the same lane and a third single-track motor vehicle preceding directly the second single-track motor vehicle are detected with the aid of a surroundings sensor system. The lateral offset of the second single-track motor vehicle and of the third single-track motor vehicle are ascertained with regard to the single-track motor vehicle. The target object being selected for the method for distance control as a function of at least one of the lateral offsets.

  • Patent number: 11267449
    Abstract: A motorcycle, including method and control unit for controlling an active steering influence system, which is for actively influencing steering motions on a front wheel. A driver assistance system is for effectuating, with control instructions to components of the motorcycle, longitudinal accelerations. The driver assistance and active steering influence systems are for a signal communication with each other, e.g., via lines. The driver assistance system is for outputting, before/while outputting a control instruction, a signal instruction to the active steering influence system so that the active steering influence system, via an active modification of its state, counters a change of a movement direction, which is associated with the longitudinal acceleration to be effectuated with the control instruction.

  • Publication number: 20210387620
    Abstract: A method for controlling a speed or proximity control system of a two-wheeled motor vehicle. In the method, a voice command of the rider of the two-wheeled motor vehicle is picked up by a microphone; and at least one parameter of the speed or proximity control system is adjusted as a function of the voice command.

  • Publication number: 20210362712
    Abstract: A method for influencing and/or deactivating a cruise control system of a single-track motor vehicle, in which, after the activation of the method by the driver, the speed of a second motor vehicle traveling directly ahead is ascertained, the speed of the preceding motor vehicle is adopted by the motor vehicle, and a driver warning regarding the deactivation of the cruise control system, which has taken place or is impending, taking place with the aid of a haptic signal and the cruise control system being deactivated if a predefined minimum speed is undershot.

  • Publication number: 20210297759
    Abstract: A loudspeaker containing a sound-generating element and a grill mounted as a cover in front of the sound-generating element. The grill has optically transparent areas. At least one lighting element is mounted between the sound-generating element and the grill, the lighting element being visible from the outside through the optically transparent areas of the grill when illuminated.

  • Patent number: 11077851
    Abstract: A method for switching over from a first driver assistance function to a second driver assistance function in a two-wheeled vehicle; one of the driver assistance functions being an adaptive distance and speed control function, and the other driver assistance function being a cruise control function; the switchover being accomplished by uninterrupted manipulation of an actuating element by the driver over a time interval of predefined length.

  • Publication number: 20200290602
    Abstract: A method for controlling movement for a single-track motor vehicle. The distance from or the speed relative to a vehicle following behind the motor vehicle is sensed by a rear driving-environment sensor system sensing the rearward area behind the motor vehicle. In response to a drop below a distance limiting value or if a relative-speed limiting value is exceeded, warning information is output for the driver of the single-track motor vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20200231170
    Abstract: A method for monitoring a blind spot of a two-wheeled vehicle includes a step of using traffic lane information representing a position of the two-wheeled vehicle in its lane and/or a position of at least one adjacent lane to define at least one warning region that at least partially includes a blind spot and a step of providing a blind spot warning if object information that represents a position of another vehicle displays the other vehicle within the warning region.

  • Publication number: 20200148209
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for temporarily deactivating a function of maintaining constant speed for a two-wheeled motor vehicle, independently of a driver, where a speed to be maintained is specified by the driver, the occurrence of cornering is detected, and, in response to the occurrence of cornering, the specified speed is reduced independently of the driver.

  • Publication number: 20200047755
    Abstract: A method for operating a motor vehicle, in particular a motorcycle, in which a driving maneuver, which includes a lane change and/or a passing maneuver, is carried out in an at least partially automated manner. The acceleration dynamics of the motor vehicle are adjusted as a function of the relative speed of at least one other motor vehicle, for example of a motor vehicle preceding and/or approaching from behind, as the driving maneuver is carried out.
