Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR DETERMINING AN ESTIMATE OF THE TOTAL MASS OF A MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
Method for determining the total mass of a motor vehicle from data of a communication network and vehicle parameters, wherein an estimate is determined of the total laden mass (m v,est ) of the vehicle, the speed of the vehicle (v est ) and the slope of the road (α est ) at a time (k) by applying a fundamental dynamic equation and as a function of the values of the total mass of the vehicle, the speed of the vehicle and the slope of the road at a preceding time (k-1).
