Title: METHOD FOR CLASSIFYING AN OBJECT IN THE SURROUNDINGS OF A MOTOR VEHICLE, AND DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for classifying an object (11) in the surroundings (8) of a motor vehicle (1), in which method the object (11) is detected by a surroundings sensor (3) of the motor vehicle (1) and at least one feature (15) of the object (11) is determined, wherein the feature (15) is compared to at least one reference feature (16) and a similarity value is determined on the basis of the comparison, wherein the object is assigned to a predetermined object class (12) having the reference feature (16) if the similarity value is greater than a similarity limit value, wherein a new object class (13) different from the predetermined object class (12) is generated on the basis of the feature (15) and the object (11) is assigned to the new object class (13) if the similarity value is lower than the similarity limit value.
