  • Publication number: 20060173598
    Abstract: A method for triggering restraint devices is described in which various algorithms determine values as a function of at least one sensor signal, which are combined to form a measure, and in which the restraint devices are triggered as a function of the measure influenced by at least one signal from a passenger-compartment sensor system.

  • Publication number: 20050228566
    Abstract: An improved passenger protection is achieved by refining the criterion for triggering the restraining unit provided for impact situations. A system and a method for generating a triggering signal for the restraining unit in a vehicle are provided for this purpose, the restraining unit being provided for the event of a collision of the vehicle—head-on collision, side impact. The system includes a unit for detecting an impact, which, in the event of an impact, generates a request signal for the restraining unit corresponding to the type of impact, and a unit for detecting a rotational motion of the vehicle about at least one vehicle axis—longitudinal axis (x) and/or transverse axis (y)—which generate a corresponding status signal.
