Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR VERIFYING A TRIGGER DECISION FOR TRIGGERING A SAFETY DEVICE FOR A VEHICLE, METHOD AND DEVICE FOR TRIGGERING A SAFETY DEVICE FOR A VEHICLE, SENSOR DEVICE FOR A VEHICLE, AND SAFETY SYSTEM FOR A VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for verifying a trigger decision for triggering a safety device (410) for a vehicle (400). The method has a step of reading a sensor signal (450) from at least one detection element (442) of a sensor device (440) of the vehicle (400). The sensor signal (450) represents a physical measurement variable to be taken into consideration in the trigger decision. The method further has a step of carrying out a check of the sensor signal (450) for the presence of a trigger event using an electronic circuit (444) of the sensor device (440). The electronic circuit (444) and the detection element (442) form an integrated assembly. The method also has a step of determining verification information (455) using the result of the check in order to output to an output interface (446) of the sensor device (440).
