  • Publication number: 20210276549
    Abstract: A method for vehicle control. The method includes a step of reading in a camera signal, a step of executing a semantic segmentation, and a step of ascertaining a control signal. The camera signal represents an optically detected image of a roadway to be driven by a vehicle. In the step of executing, the semantic segmentation of the image represented by the camera signal is executed, to detect a free area ahead of the vehicle from the image as a drivable road section. In addition, a roadway signal representing the detected drivable road section is provided. In the step of ascertaining, the control signal for activating at least one vehicle component is ascertained, using the roadway signal.

  • Publication number: 20200198638
    Abstract: A method for determining an idealized passing maneuver includes receiving first data values that represent a passing maneuver of a first vehicle to pass a second vehicle, requesting and receiving surroundings data values that represent instantaneous and/or future surroundings of the first vehicle and/or of the second vehicle, determining a surroundings model of the first vehicle based on the surroundings data values and on a digital map that represents the instantaneous and/or future surroundings of the first vehicle and/or of the second vehicle, determining an idealized passing maneuver for the first vehicle to carry out the passing maneuver base don the surroundings model, and providing the idealized passing maneuver in the form of second data values for receipt by the first vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10015277
    Abstract: A communication method is provided for transmitting useful data between a first traffic participant, at least one second traffic participant, and a central communication device. It is provided that the first traffic participant provides a data packet and transmits it to the central communication device, the data packet being assigned to a changing key that is transmitted together with the data packet, and that the first traffic participant transmits an identifier together with the key to the second traffic participant, and that the second traffic participant requests from the central communication device, using the key, the data packet assigned thereto, and assigns it to the first traffic participant. Also provided is a communication system.

  • Patent number: 8918254
    Abstract: A control device may assist in parking maneuvers of a vehicle. The control device may include an interface to a sensor unit for detecting a boundary of a parking space in the surroundings of the vehicle. An arithmetic unit may determine a trajectory into a parking position in the parking space. In some embodiments the arithmetic unit is configured to calculate a trajectory into the parking position, taking into account a potential extension of parts of the body of the vehicle beyond the boundary of the parking space. Devices and methods are provided.
