Title: Arrangement and method for detecting objects from a motor vehicle

Abstract: A motor vehicle object-detecting arrangement includes a distance controller having a distance-sensing device for emitting and receiving object-reflected measuring beams in different directions and having an evaluation unit. The measuring beams received by the distance-sensing device are appraised as a function of the geometry of the road on which the vehicle is being driven. For this purpose an appraisal device receives information from the distance sensing device and from a transmitter unit which supplies information on the road geometry of the road. The appraisal device appraises the measuring beams reflected from different directions as a function of the information on the road geometry.
