Description

  • The invention relates to a method for remote maneuvering of a trailer consisting of a towing vehicle and a trailer, in particular a trailer with non-steerable drawbar, according to the preamble of claim 1 and a corresponding device according to the preamble of claim 9.
  • The shunting of a team consisting of a towing vehicle and a trailer can easily be a test of patience. With the provision of a shunting assistant such as the "Trailer Assist" from Volkswagen, the task of parking a trailer for the driver can be mastered more easily. If the trailer is in a suitable starting position, the maneuvering assistant can take over control within the system limits. With the "Trailer Assist" shunting assistant, the appropriate direction of travel is set with the mirror adjustment switch and corrected during the entire steering process, which is performed by the "Trailer Assist". The driver only has to operate the gearshift, throttle and brake, leaving control of the vehicle to the driver, since the steering process can be stopped at any time via a steering intervention.
  • The publication DE 10 2012 015 435 A1 describes such an assistant for maneuvering a team consisting of a towing vehicle and a trailer, wherein the trailer is connected by means of a non-steerable drawbar with the towing vehicle and the towing vehicle by means of a reversing camera observing the rear environment including trailer. The following steps are performed:
    • Determination of the actual kink angle of the trailer relative to the towing vehicle,
    • - Determination of the drawbar length and the maximum bending angle of the trailer,
    • - input of the desired bending angle of the trailer,
    • Reversing the towing vehicle with at least active steering assistance until reaching the desired bending angle of the trailer,
    • Fixing the direction of travel predetermined by the desired bending angle,
    • - Rang the towing vehicle with at least active steering assistance while maintaining the predetermined direction of travel until reaching a final parking position.
  • In confusing environment situations monitoring the maneuvering by the driver located in the motor vehicle can be difficult, so that if necessary, a second person located outside the vehicle observed the maneuvering and give the driver hints. Now, there is not always a second person to externally track the shunting operation, so that direct monitoring of the maneuvering of the trailer assistant by the driver located outside the vehicle by means of a suitable remote control is desirable.
  • The publication DE 10 2012 008 858 A1 relates to a method for performing an autonomous parking operation of a motor vehicle, wherein between a located outside the motor vehicle operator and the motor vehicle, a communication link exists by which at least one command for activating the autonomous parking operation of the motor vehicle is transferable. In this case, the target position and / or last trajectory of the motor vehicle is stored in a device suitable for this purpose before the autonomous parking operation of the motor vehicle and the motor vehicle performs after the first activation of the autonomous parking process autonomously from the start position based on the data stored in the device Parking process off.
  • The publication DE 10 2013 012 394 A1 relates to a method and apparatus for remotely controlling a function of a vehicle. The device comprises a portable operating device with a touch-sensitive display and control surface and a gesture detection. By means of the portable operating device, a gesture executed by a user is detected and a wireless communication connection is established between the portable operating device and the vehicle. Predefined gestures are assigned and stored to control the function of the vehicle. The detected gesture is transmitted to the vehicle via the communication link. In the vehicle, the sensed gesture is compared with the predefined gestures and, when matched, the function of the vehicle associated with the gesture is performed. Furthermore, the invention relates to a device for inputting the graphic guided gesture with a graphical guide. In this case, the graphical guide comprises a plurality of end positions, wherein the end positions are connected via connecting paths and the end positions symbolize the gear positions of a vehicle.
  • The invention is therefore an object of the invention to avoid unwanted operation error remote control for the external operation of a Anhängerrangierassistenten.
  • This object is achieved by a method having the features of claim 1 and by an apparatus having the features of claim 9 solved. Preferred embodiments of the method are the subject of the dependent claims.

  • In this way, a dead man's function is easily generated by the continuous pressing of the button, thereby ensuring that the user of the Anhängerrangierassistenten tracking the maneuvering by means of the external remote control safely.
  • Preferably, the remote control is realized by a smartphone. It can be displayed on the smartphone, the team in plan view and the necessary to execute the assistance functions of Anhängerrangierassistenten controls including the necessary softkeys (softkeys).
  • More preferably, a continuous operation of a software button shown on the display for forward travel of the team or a software button for reversing the team shown on the display must be done by the user to effect the Rangierbewegung the team. The software keys of the Anhängerrangierassistenten are thus not only used to carry out the corresponding movement of the team, but also serve to realize the deadman function.
  • Preferably, the continuous pressing of one of the software keys is carried out by a continuous pressing or by a constant wiping movement via the corresponding software key.
  • Preferably, the persistent pressing of the softkey is monitored by examining the state of the soft key at predetermined time intervals, referred to as polling. In this case, the time interval is preferably in the range of seconds and in particular is one second.
  • More preferably, the continuously operated software key has an outer area surrounding the software key, which is also assigned the deadman function of the software key, while the remaining area of the touch-sensitive surface of the display is configured as a break-off surface, so that a pressure exerted on the break-off surface leads to a termination of the Maneuvering maneuver with active deadman function of the software key and the outer area surrounding the software key leads. In this way it is ensured that the Anhängerrangierassistent is turned off when a pressure on the outer area of the actively operated software key surrounding the remaining area of the display is exerted, be it by a finger or by other electrical action on this area.
  • In a further preferred embodiment, the deadman function is associated with a side volume control of the smartphone, so that further software functions of the display of the smartphone during the active deadman function can be accessed.
  • The inventive device for remote assisted maneuvering a team consisting of a towing vehicle and a trailer, wherein the apparatus is designed and set up to carry out the method described above, has a device for executing a deadman function to avoid erroneous operations during maneuvering of the team.
  • Preferably, the trailer is connected by means of a non-steerable drawbar with the towing vehicle and the towing vehicle observed by means of a reversing camera, the rear environment including trailer.
  • A preferred embodiment of the invention will be explained below with reference to the drawings. It shows
    • 1 the sequence of an externally monitored parking process of a team,
    • 2 a first way of securing the function of a remote-controlled trailer assistant,
    • 3 a second possibility of safeguarding the function of a remote-controlled trailer assistant,
    • 4 avoiding a misoperation, and
    • 5 a third way of securing the function of a remote-controlled trailer assistant.
  • 1 describes in a schematic way the sequence of an externally monitored or controlled parking process of a team with the help of a trailer assistant. In the first step S1 the team is parked in a suitable starting position. The driver of the towing vehicle now has the Possibility to start the Trailer Allocation Assistant already in the vehicle for the vehicle to be in Trailer Allocation mode. In this case, the vehicle is stationary with the engine running. It is also possible for the driver to move the trailer hanker assistant in step S1 not yet start and the vehicle is shut down, ie the engine is turned off.
  • At the second step S2 the change of the user, so here in the example of the driver, the vehicle to the outside. In other words, the driver leaves the towing vehicle of the team to monitor or initiate the parking process from the outside.
  • Was the Trailerrangierassistent in the vehicle in the step S1 not started, so in the third step S3 the remote-controlled Anhängerrangierassistent started from the remote control, which takes place in the preferred embodiment of an app on a smartphone. In other words, the towing vehicle will be put into Assisted Parker Parking mode via the app.
  • Subsequently, the engine of the towing vehicle is started from the outside by means of the app and the driver can then maneuver the trailer by means of the trailer assistant or operate the trailer assistants.
  • In contrast, the Trailerrangierassistent in step S1 started and put into the mode "Supported parking the team", so takes over in the step S3 the user by means of the remote control of the Anhängerrangierassistenten what is also done by means of the app of a smartphone. Starting the engine of the towing vehicle is not necessary because it was not turned off in this case and therefore still running. After taking over the control of the Anhängerrangierassistenten by the remote control, ie the user, the team can be maneuvered and operated by means of the trailer assistant.
  • In step S4 the team has found his final parking position and the engine of the towing vehicle is parked by the user by remote control or the user goes back into the vehicle and turns off the engine from there.
  • 2 shows the appearance of the Anhängerrangierassistenten on the designed as a touchscreen display 2 a remote control 1 especially a smartphone. The following is therefore from a smartphone 1 speak, but this is not meant to be limiting. On the display 2 of the smartphone 1 activating the appropriate Trailer Appraisal App will display the trailer 3 and its surroundings. To run the trailer routing assistant are on display 2 a button forward 4 and a reverse button 5 superimposed on the touch-sensitive and motion-sensitive surface of the display 2 can be operated.
  • There is also an upper information bar 15 and a lower information bar 16 shown on the display, which contain further information or access to vehicle information for the user. These information bars 15 . 16 are not important to the description of the preferred embodiment and are therefore mentioned for the sake of completeness. Furthermore, the smartphone points 1 still lateral controls 17 and 18 on, which can be used for example to control the volume, etc.
  • The presentation of the team to be joined 3 includes the representation of towing vehicle 6 and the trailer, once the trailer actual state 7 as well as the trailer target state 8th , wherein for setting the trailer target state 8th and the trailer actual state 7 a circle-shaped angle representation 9 on the display 2 is displayed.
  • To inform the user about the active remote control of the maneuvering assistant is on the display 2 an activity notice in the central field of view 10 appears. Furthermore, there is a front surrounding field 11 , a laterally left surrounding field 12 a laterally right surrounding field 13 and a rear environment field 14 of the team 3 on the display 2 shown. In these environment fields 11 . 12 . 13 . 14 Be the obstacles by appropriate environment sensors of the towing vehicle 6 be detected, shown in plan view. Further, by operating the environment buttons designed as buttons 11 , 12, 13, 14 the corresponding surrounding field are displayed from the camera view, so that the distance to the obstacle is optically directly visible.
  • The actuation of the on display 2 shown forward drive button 4 or the reverse button 5 causes the team 3 moves in the appropriate direction. The forward drive button takes over 4 or the reverse button 5 in addition to the initiation of the movement of the team 3 also the task of a deadman button. In other words, the team only moves as long as the corresponding button 4 . 5 is pressed. Will the pressed forward button 4 or the reverse button 5 no longer pressed, the movement of the team is terminated.
  • In the embodiment of the 2 becomes the continuous operation of the reverse button 5 through the thumb of a hand 19 shown, with the ongoing operation by the ongoing Press the reverse button 5 is effected. To keep pressing the reverse button 5 To monitor, this "software button" is examined at predetermined time intervals on their condition, which can be effected by a so-called "polling". In other words, the reliability of the deadman function of the return button 5 is established by a cyclic query of its state.
  • 3 shows another embodiment of securing the deadman function when executing the Anhängerrangierassistenten by means of a remote control 1 which is realized by a smartphone.
  • This corresponds to the design of the smartphone 1 and the presentation of the team 3 on the display 2 of the smartphone 1 that of the 2 , so for explanation on the 2 is referenced.
  • In the embodiment of the 3 Again, the example of reversing the team 3 in Anhängerrangiermodus effected by the continuous operation of the return button 5, the deadman function is not by a continuous pressing this button 5 by a finger of the hand 19 , here the thumb, but by a continuous movement or stroking of the thumb over the surface of the return button 5 is effected away. This continuous swipe of the finger over the return button, which in 3 through the course of the movement 20 of the thumb 20 symbolized, ie the wiping movement with continuous coordinate change, can be referred to as scrolling or scribbling. If this scrolling or scribbling is ended, the movement of the team is immediately terminated. The deadman function of the reverse button 5 is thus effected by the continuous sweeping over the key surface. For the forward drive button 4 the deadman function is effected in the same way.
  • 4 shows the prevention of incorrect operation based on the 2 and 3 in the above described Totmannfunktion in a schematic representation, wherein in 4 only the necessary reference numerals are inserted. This is to ensure the dead man's function when pressing the reverse button 5 , where around the return button a the button 5 surrounding outer area 21 is fixed. Come the finger, here the thumb, the hand 19 the user when performing the reverse by means of the continuous pressing the return button 5 whether by pressing or scribbling, some of the key 5 off, without the continuous operation is interrupted, the movement of the team is continued. In other words, the function of the deadman function of the return button 5 remains as long as the continuous operation on the outer area 21 around the return button 5 is limited.
  • The remaining area of the touch-sensitive surface of the display 2 of the smartphone 1 in other words the entire surface of the display 2 minus the return button 5 surrounding outer area 21 defines a demolition area 22 concerning the deadman function. Therefore leaves the user in the continuous operation of the return button 5 the outer area 21 , for example, by slipping of the thumb of the hand 19 when pressing continuously or when scribbling, the execution of the Anhängerrangierassistenten is immediately interrupted, ie the return movement is stopped. Further, the movement of the team 3 stopped when an actuation of the demolition area 22 he follows
  • The unillustrated prevention of incorrect operation of the deadman function for the forward drive button 4 takes place in the same way. It will be in the continuous operation of the forward drive button 4 also an outer area around the button 4 defines the rest of the surface of the display 2 is defined as a demolition area. With leaving the outer area in a continuous operation of the forward drive button 4 or by any operation of the demolition surface is the movement of the team 3 stopped.
  • 5 shows a further embodiment of ensuring the remote control of the Anhängerrangierassistenten by using the volume control 17 of the smartphone 1. Thus takes over in this embodiment, the volume control 17 the execution of the deadman function during an active trailer routing assistant. Becomes the volume control 17 constantly reducing the volume by the left-hand finger 23 pressed, then the reverse of the team 3 causes the reverse is maintained as long as the volume control 17 remains pressed. In the same way, pressing the volume control will cause 17 on the side of increasing the volume, moving the team 3 in the forward direction, in which case the forward movement is maintained as long as the volume control 17 remains pressed in the direction of increase. This is how the volume control performs 17 the deadman function off.
  • With, for example, the thumb of the right hand 19 can then be carried out at the same time an adjustment of the trailer roll angle by the illustrated trailer actual state 7 by wiping with a finger of the right hand 19 in the trailer nominal state 8th is transferred. Furthermore, with the software keys 4 . 5 an increase or decrease in the driving speed of the team 3 be effected simultaneously with the left hand 23, the deadman function is maintained.
