Title: METHOD FOR DETERMINING A DEGREE-OF-DAMAGE UNCERTAINTY OF A MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method (1) for determining a degree-of-damage uncertainty (18) of a component of a motor vehicle (3). In a determining step (2), during the operation of the motor vehicle (3), motor vehicle parameters (6) are ascertained continuously at predefined time intervals on the basis of items of sensor and driving state information (4, 5) available in the respective motor vehicle (3). The motor vehicle parameters (6) are subsequently processed in one or more parallel and/or successive evaluation steps (7, 9), and a degree of damage (11) of the component is ascertained. A degree-of-damage uncertainty (18) is ascertained on the basis of predefined parameter uncertainty variables and/or functions (12), which for each determined motor vehicle parameter (6) represent a degree of uncertainty for whether the determined motor vehicle parameter (6) corresponds to a real motor vehicle parameter (6), and on the basis of predefined evaluation step uncertainty variables and/or functions (14, 15), which for each evaluation step represent a degree of uncertainty for whether evaluation step influencing variables, independent of the motor vehicle parameters (6) and taken into consideration in the respective evaluation step (7, 9), correspond to the real evaluation step influencing variables. The degree-of-damage uncertainty (18) represents a measure for whether the component has actually sustained damage corresponding to the ascertained degree of damage (11).
