Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19726485A1] The method relates to at least one method for determining the load in an internal combustion engine of a vehicle. Operating parameters of the internal combustion engine are detected and at least one value representing the load is selected from a characteristic diagram, in accordance with the detected operating parameters. The invention is characterized in that at least one further parameter, which is detected by a sensor already present in the vehicle, and which is not an operating parameter of the internal combustion engine, is taken into account in determining the load.
