Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR AUTONOMOUSLY STEERING A VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for autonomously steering a vehicle (100), having a driving assistance system (108), at least one adjusting device (104) which can be actuated by the driving assistance system (108) for controlling a steering (106) of the vehicle (100), and at least one braking device (118) for braking a wheel (116) of the vehicle (100). In the method, operating state information (112) on an operating state of the adjusting device (104) and driving direction information (110) on a driving direction change of the vehicle (100) are first read, said driving direction change being specified by the driving assistance system (108). If the operating state information (112) represents a failure or at least one restricted functionality of the adjusting device (104), a control signal (114) for controlling the braking device (118) is provided using the driving direction information (110) in order to steer the vehicle (100) into a direction which corresponds to the driving direction change by braking the wheel (116).
