  • Publication number: 20210170853
    Abstract: A battery box for a motor vehicle for receiving battery cells has a structural frame with at least two structural components joined to one another at the end face. Each structural component has at least one profile segment that is partially hollow and has a substantially L-shaped cross section. A reinforcement element for absorbing collision energy in the event of a collision is arranged within at least one of the profile segments. The reinforcement element is a molded part having a plurality of open cells, which are arranged adjacent to one another and with their longitudinal extent substantially parallel to one another. When the battery box is mounted in the motor vehicle, the open cells are oriented with their longitudinal extent substantially parallel to the transverse direction of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20210162991
    Abstract: A method for avoiding a collision of a vehicle with an obstacle, using at least one ultrasonic sensor. Reflection points are determined during a movement of the vehicle, the reflection points representing locations at which a signal of an ultrasonic sensor was reflected. The reflection points are combined into contiguous, linearly extending wall sections, a wall section having two ends. Furthermore, it is determined whether an end of a wall section is open or closed. The progression abutting an open end of a wall section is extrapolated, and virtual collision points between the vehicle and the extrapolated progression of the wall sections are ascertained. An initiation of a brake intervention follows if a collision with a virtual collision point is imminent. A driver assistance system including at least one ultrasonic sensor configured to carry out the method, and a vehicle including such a driver assistance system, are also described.

  • Patent number: 10857868
    Abstract: The invention relates to a structural component for a motor vehicle, comprising an at least partially hollow profiled segment, which can be connected to a motor vehicle body by means of at least two fastening elements arranged in a fastening section. The problem addressed by the invention is that of increasing the crash safety of the structural component. This problem is solved in that a reinforcing element (6) is arranged in the fastening section between a lateral impact surface (16) and the fastening elements (4), which reinforcing element extends in the longitudinal direction of the profiled segment and, in the event of an impact from the impact surface, laterally comes into contact with the fastening means at least partially by means of displacement of the fastening elements, the impact energy thus being absorbed.
