Abstract (en)

Passive-entry function type motor vehicle door locking systems used generally have a series of disadvantages ranging for the use of capacitive proximity sensors and the high expense associated with provision of two sensors in order to discriminate between initial contact with the door handle, and actuation of the latter. To overcome these disadvantages, the present system includes a sensor (12) assigned to the door handle for ascertaining contact and/or actuation of the door handle (10), especially by the hand of a user-person. The sensor (12) has a force- or pressure-sensitive sensor element (13) which is arranged on the door handle (10) or joined to the latter.

Abstract (de)

Es werden ein Kraftfahrzeug-Türschließsystem, eine Türaußengriffanordnung, eine Verwendung eines kraft- bzw. drucksensitiven Sensorelements und ein Verfahren zur Steuerung eines Kraftfahrzeug-Türschließsystems vorgeschlagen. Zur einfachen, kostengünstig realisierbaren Sensierung einer Berührung und/oder Betätigung eines Türaußengriffs ist ein kraft- bzw. drucksensitives Sensorelement am Türaußengriff angeordnet oder mit diesem verbunden. <IMAGE>
