  • Patent number: 11007959
    Abstract: In a method for correcting at least one collision parameter determined by an anticipatory environment-sensor system of a vehicle and in a corresponding integrated safety system of the vehicle, a common time basis is established in the vehicle, a signal age and/or a latency time of at least one collision parameter is ascertained based on the common time base and on a time stamp that is output together with the at least one collision parameter, the at least one collision parameter is corrected based on the ascertained signal age and/or ascertained latency time, and the corrected parameter is output to at least one precrash function prior to an impact.

  • Publication number: 20200339125
    Abstract: A method for operating a driving assistance system. The method includes operating at least one sensor device in a host vehicle for monitoring the surroundings of the host vehicle; recognizing a fast-moving vehicle that is traveling in a first lane adjacent to a second lane in which the host vehicle is traveling, and determining a travel speed of the fast-moving vehicle in a travel direction of the host vehicle, based on a travel speed of the host vehicle or of a following vehicle or of a preceding vehicle, by the sensor device and by a control device; identifying a movement of the fast-moving vehicle as a passing operation of the host vehicle or of the following vehicle or of the preceding vehicle; and identifying a change in the movement of the fast-moving vehicle as an abortion of the passing operation.

  • Patent number: 10752195
    Abstract: A method for providing an activation signal activating a vehicle occupant protection device includes reading in passenger compartment data from a passenger compartment detection unit and seat belt data from a seat belt sensor. The passenger compartment data represent a passenger compartment of the vehicle. The seat belt data represent a seat belt fastening angle of a seat belt of the vehicle at a belt reversing point relative to a reference axis of the vehicle. The method also includes determining, based on the passenger compartment data, a piece of seat position information representing an occupancy state of a vehicle seat by an occupant and a relative position of the seat relative to the vehicle; ascertaining an occupant class, representing a physical characteristic of the occupant, using the seat position information seat belt data; and generating the activation signal using the seat position information and the occupant class.

  • Patent number: 10656641
    Abstract: A method and a system for controlling a driving function of a vehicle, whereby in a first operating state, the driving function is controlled by a vehicle guidance system, and in a second operating state, the driving function is controlled by a command of a driver, a transition from the first operating state to the second operating state being accomplished with the aid of an orderly handover through a preset handover procedure when it is recognized that a predetermined first condition is fulfilled, or with the aid of a handover in a fallback solution when it is recognized that a predetermined second condition is fulfilled.

  • Patent number: 10562527
    Abstract: A method for controlling a vehicle. A piece of hazard area information, which represents at least one hazard area in the surroundings of the vehicle, and a piece of approach information, which represents an approach to the vehicle of at least one further vehicle driving next to the vehicle, are read in. Using the approach information, at least one collision parameter of a collision between the vehicle and the further vehicle is ascertained. Finally, a control signal is generated, using the collision parameter and the hazard area information, to steer the vehicle in a direction facing away from the hazard area.

  • Publication number: 20200039535
    Abstract: A method for assisting a driver during the deactivation of a highly automated driving mode of a vehicle. In this context, a takeover signal, which represents a takeover of control of the vehicle by the driver, and auxiliary information are read in. The auxiliary information includes image information representing the driver and/or vehicle-control information representing a control of the vehicle by the driver. In a further step, a degree of attentiveness of the driver is determined, using the takeover signal and the auxiliary information. Finally, using the degree of attentiveness, an assistance signal is output to assist the driver during the takeover of control, by activating at least one driver-assistance function of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10490084
    Abstract: A method for transforming data of a sensor. First data of a first sensor of a first vehicle and a first position are initially provided. The first data include a first distance and a first direction to an object. The first position includes a location of the first sensor at which the first data were ascertained. A second position of a second vehicle is additionally provided. The first data are subsequently converted into transformed data based on the first position and the second position, the transformed data including a second distance and a second direction. The second distance is a distance between the object and the second position. The second direction is a direction between the object and the second position. The transformed data are subsequently output.
