Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR CONTROLLING A VEHICLE SEAT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for controlling drive units for adjusting vehicle seat components. According to said method, a vehicle speed-dependent and crash-related nominal position or a vehicle speed-dependent and crash-related nominal position range are defined for at least one component. Starting from an actual position that is the same as the nominal position (which can also be a minimum position) or from an actual position within the nominal position range, the actual position cannot be manually or automatically adjusted in the first instance or can only be adjusted in the nominal position range in the second instance, independently from the identification of a crash situation. Starting from an actual position that is different from the nominal position or outside the nominal position range, the actual position is automatically adjusted towards the nominal position or the nominal position range, preferably according to the identified defined situations, independently from the identification of a crash situation.
