Summary:

The invention relates to a motor vehicle comprising: 1) a communication unit that is designed to receive respective status data from at least one other vehicle located in an environment of the motor vehicle, 2) said status data containing positional information of the other vehicle; and 3) an analysis device having a digital road map with driving direction information. The object of the invention is to provide means for detecting a wrong-way driver. The analysis device is designed to enter the position of the other vehicle on the road into the digital road map. It will check whether the other vehicle is travelling in the wrong direction. This is based on the driving direction information prescribed for the position on the road, and on the status data of the other vehicle. If the other vehicle is detected as a wrong-way driver, an alarm is generated.

A technique for determining shifted cargo on a vehicle is described. Sensor fusion is used to continuously calculate the center of mass of a vehicle in motion. The device is continuously comparing data of existing sensors and comparing them to recent calculations of likewise situations. The center of mass is one of the key elements for stability and maneuverability of a vehicle. Shifted cargo can now be recognized and tracked.
Severity of change can be used to trigger warnings (loosen cargo scattering around), significantly improve advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and guarantee overall functionality for semi- or fully autonomous cars.
