Abstract

See full text

Control system for controlling a part of the vehicle including electronic sensors or sensor systems on the vehicle, each sensor system providing a measurement related to a state of the electronic sensor system or a measurement related to a state of the mounting location, and a processor coupled to the electronic sensors or sensor systems and arranged to diagnose the state of the vehicle based on the measurements of the sensor system, e.g., by the application of a pattern recognition technique. The processor controls the part based at least in part on the diagnosed state of the vehicle.
