Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR CARRYING OUT A DRIVER-INDEPENDENT BRAKE FORCE HOLDING FUNCTION IN A MOTOR VEHICLE WHEN SAME IS STATIONARY ON A ROAD ANGLED IN THE THE LONGITUDINAL DIRECTION OF THE VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for carrying out a driver-independent brake force holding function in a motor vehicle when same is stationary on a road angled in the longitudinal direction of the vehicle, wherein the driver-independently maintained brake force is reduced when a release condition is fulfilled, wherein, in the method, the uphill distance is determined by a first distance sensor system, said uphill distance corresponding to the gap or distance to the neighbouring vehicle in the uphill direction, and if a predetermined limit value is not met by the uphill distance, the brake force is reduced before the release condition is fulfilled, so that the motor vehicle moves.
