The invention relates to a sensor system comprising a switch point sensor which is mounted opposite to a magnet, said magnet is mechanically secured to a linearly displaceable element and moving past said switch point sensor.
Switching commands are allocated to the shifting point, the former including shift jumps over one or more gear steps.
At least one detent point (8.3, 8.9) for locking the mirror head into the predetermined pivot positions (fig.s 1 and 2) is provided along the guide (6).
The magnet is magnetized perpendicular to the direction of movement of the displaceable element in a sensor system which has a high signal gradient.
A shift-point selection control unit (22), which may be designed as a fuzzy-control unit, is included in the engine-control unit (2).
