Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2016162256A1] The invention relates to a control method for establishing in a motor vehicle, on the basis of environment data obtained by one or more environment sensors present on the motor vehicle, that, while an ACC system is active in one's own motor vehicle, another motor vehicle, which is moving relative to one's own motor vehicle in a neighboring lane, has a tendency to change to the lane of one's own motor vehicle. The environment sensor are designed to provide environment data representing the area laterally ahead of, laterally next to and/or laterally behind one's own vehicle. As soon as the environment data representing said tendency exceed a predefined significance threshold, autonomous driving operation interventions (i) are trigged to increase the distance to another motor vehicle which is moving relative to one's own motor vehicle in the same lane ahead of one's own motor vehicle, and/or (ii) the driving speed of one's own motor vehicle is reduced if no other motor vehicle moving relative to one's own motor vehicle in the same lane ahead of one's own motor vehicle is detected to allow another motor vehicle moving relative to one's own motor vehicle in the neighboring lane to change lane from the neighboring lane to the lane of one's own motor vehicle.
