Title: METHOD FOR IMPROVING DETECTION OF AT LEAST ONE OBJECT IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF A MOTOR VEHICLE BY MEANS OF AN INDIRECT MEASUREMENT USING SENSORS, CONTROL DEVICE, DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEM, AND MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for detecting at least one object (3) in an environment (4) of a motor vehicle (1), in which a first sensor (6) is controlled to emit a sensor signal, sensor data describing the sensor signal reflected by the at least one object (3) are received by a second sensor (6), a blurred feature (xU) is determined from the sensor data as an object feature (xP, xL, xU) for describing the at least one object (3), wherein the blurred feature (xU) describes a distance between the at least one object (3) and the first sensor (6) and a distance between the at least one object and the second sensor (6), wherein the blurred feature (xU) is described as an ellipse (xE), a further object feature (xP, xL) describing the at least one object (3) is determined on the basis of sensor data from at least one further measurement by the first and/or second sensor (6), the further object feature (xP, xL) and the blurred feature (xU) are converted into a common state space using an innovation function (h), wherein the innovation function (h) describes a similarity between the blurred feature (xU) and the further object feature (xP, xL), and a combined object feature is determined from the further object feature (xP, xL) on the basis of the innovation function (h).
