Abstract
(DE)
Die Erfindung betrifft ein Verfahren zur Erhöhung der Leuchtweite eines Fahrzeugs (100), mit einem Schritt des Empfangens einer Aufblendinformation über eine Schnittstelle, wobei die Aufblendinformation eine Möglichkeit zum blendfreien Betreiben des Fernlichts (104) anzeigt. Weiterhin umfasst das Verfahren einen Schritt des Ermittelns einer zurückgelegten Wegstrecke des Fahrzeugs, ansprechend auf das Empfangen der Aufblendinformation und einen Schritt des Bereitstellens einer Erhöhungsinformation zur Erhöhung der Leuchtweite, wenn die zurückgelegte Wegstrecke nach dem Empfangen der Aufblendinformation größer als eine vorbestimmte Mindeststrecke ist und/oder ein Schritt des Bereitstellens wenigstens eines Wertes der Erhöhung der Leuchtweite (Erhöhungswert) abhängig von der zurückgelegten Wegstrecke.
(EN)
The invention relates to a method for increasing the light range of a vehicle (100), comprising a step of receiving full-beam-activation information via an interface, the full-beam-activation information displaying a possibility for the anti-dazzle operation of the main beam (104). The method also comprises a step of determining a distance covered by the vehicle, in response to the reception of the full-beam-activation information, and a step of providing range-increasing information for increasing the headlight range when the covered distance following the reception of the full-beam-activation information is longer than a pre-determined minimum distance and/or a step of providing at least one value for increasing the light range (light-range-increasing value) according to the distance covered.

L'invention concerne un procédé permettant d'augmenter la portée des phares d'un véhicule (100), ce procédé consistant à recevoir une information concernant l'éclairage en feux de route par l'intermédiaire d'une interface, cette information d'éclairage en feux de route indiquant une possibilité de fonctionnement des feux de route (104) anti-éblouissement. Le procédé consiste également à déterminer une distance parcourue par le véhicule, en réponse à la réception de l'information concernant l'éclairage en feux de route, et à fournir une information concernant l'augmentation de la portée des phares lorsque la distance parcourue après la réception de l'information concernant l'éclairage en feux de route est supérieure à une distance minimale prédéterminée et/ou à fournir au moins une valeur de l'augmentation de la portée des phares (valeur d'augmentation) en fonction de la distance parcourue.
