Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a device and a method for correcting the measurement of the level of a liquid (16) contained in a receptacle (14) on board a vehicle (10), the device comprising at least one acceleration sensor (22) for monitoring the course taken by said vehicle, said correction being carried out as a function of the inclination of the vehicle. According to the invention, said sensor (22) is used to determine the inclination (a) of the vehicle in order to correct and/or inhibit said indication of the level. The invention can be applied to measuring the level of engine oil or fuel on board a motor vehicle.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé de correction de la mesure du niveau d'un liquide (16) contenu dans un récipient (14) embarqué à bord d'un véhicule (10), le dispositif comportant au moins un capteur d'accélération (22) pour le contrôle de la trajectoire dudit véhicule, la dite correction étant effectuée en fonction de l'inclinaison du véhicule. Selon l'invention, ledit capteur (22) est utilisé pour déterminer l'inclinaison (α) du véhicule afin de corriger et/ou d'inhiber ladite indication du niveau. Application à la mesure du niveau d'huile moteur ou de carburant embarqué à bord d'un véhicule automobile.
