Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19807124A1] The present invention relates to a method and a device which are used for actuating a retaining system and for preventing in a most simple manner any unwanted actuation thereof. This invention uses an acceleration-sensor arrangement (1) having two sensitivity axes which are oriented in different directions. The acceleration measured relative to one of the two sensitivity axes is used for performing a reasonableness check (4, 5) of an actuation decision which is derived from the acceleration measured relative to the other sensitivity axis. An actuation signal (a1, a2, a3, a4) is then outputted only if an actuation decision signal and a reasonableness signal are sent simultaneously to the inputs of an AND combinatorial circuit (6, 7, 13, 14).
