Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19725058A1] The invention relates to a device for the reliable analysis of measurement results obtained by sensing, characterized in that it makes isochronous use of several independent measuring channels (10, 11) with several independent measurement ranges which are supplied with signals by a shared yaw rate measuring element. The advantages of the invention are essentially as follows: only one expensive yaw rate measuring element is required which parallely supplies different vehicle systems with measurement data. In the cross-over zone of the measurement ranges the measurement ranges of different systems can be used simultaneously for mutual monitoring (redundancy function). Lastly, identical measurement channels can be run redundantly on an additional or exclusive basis and thus improve the operating safety of the vehicle system.
