Title: METHOD, SYSTEM, AND VEHICLE COMPRISING THE SYSTEM FOR AUTOMATIC INITIATION OF A VEHICLE FUNCTION OF A VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for automatic initiation of a vehicle function of a vehicle (206), the method comprising: determining a first location (212) of an object at a first point in time in a surroundings of a vehicle; determining a second location of the object at a second point in time in the surroundings of the vehicle; calculating a movement vector (202, 204) as a function of the determined first location of the object at the first point in time and the determined second location of the object at the second point in time; determining an intersection point between the movement vector and a virtual region of the vehicle (214), wherein the virtual region of the vehicle corresponds at least partially to a real vehicle region of the vehicle (206); and, if there is an intersection point between the movement vector (202) and a virtual region of the vehicle (214), initiation of a vehicle function.
