  • Publication number: 20210213929
    Abstract: A motor vehicle including a chassis, drive wheels connected to the chassis, steered wheels connected to the chassis, and an internal combustion engine. The internal combustion engine connected to the chassis. The internal combustion engine connected to the drive wheels. The internal combustion engine has a first predetermined range of operational capability. The engine being suitably designed for operating across the first predetermined range of operational capability throughout the life of the engine. The internal combustion engine has a second predetermined range of operational capability. The second range of operational capability is greater than the first range of operational capability. The internal combustion engine operates at the second range of operational capability for a predetermined time period when an additional fee is paid. When the predetermined time period ends, the internal combustion engine returns to the first predetermined range of operational capability.

  • Patent number: 10690078
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for estimating engine exhaust nitrogen oxide sensor signal instability in transient conditions, for example when rapid changes occur in driver demanded torque, and for eliminating fluctuations in EONOx sensor signal status, in order to have more robust on-board diagnostics monitoring and exhaust nitrogen oxide control. The system and method predicts EONOx sensor signal instability by comparing a calculated pedal based driver demand torque delta to calculated instability thresholds and instability threshold hysteresis margins, and generates instability flags. The system and method further validates any predicted EONOx sensor signal instability by observation. Upon validation of the predicted EONOx sensor signal instability, the system and method latches the EONOx sensor signal status to a stable value.
