Title: OPTICAL DETECTION DEVICE FOR MOTOR VEHICLE, WHEREIN THE OPERATION OF THE LIGHT SOURCE UNIT IS IMPLEMENTED DEPENDING ON A FUNCTIONAL STATE OF THE HOUSING, METHOD AND MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to an optical detection device (3) for a motor vehicle (1), having a housing (8) of the optical detection device (3), in which a light source unit (10) of the optical detection device (3) is arranged, wherein light beams (6) can be emitted through a housing part (9) of the housing (8) into surroundings (4) of the motor vehicle (1) by means of the light source unit (10), wherein the optical detection device (3) has a monitoring unit (16), by means of which a functional state of the housing (8) can be monitored and a control signal can be produced if an actual functional state of the housing (8) that deviates from a reference functional state of the housing (8) is identified. Further, the invention relates to a motor vehicle (1) and a method. (Fig. 2)
