  • Patent number: 10304363
    Abstract: In a test method, a screen in a vehicle is actuated in order to generate a specified raster image. An electric current intensity flowing as a result of the actuation is measured, and the measured current intensity is compared with a specified reference current intensity. It is ascertained whether the raster image was generated without errors dependent on the comparison.
