    Abstract: A method for controlling a drive unit of a motor vehicle include acquiring a speed instruction, measuring the speed of the motor vehicle, and computing a control instruction for the drive unit on the basis of the measured speed and of the speed instruction. When the motor vehicle is moving forwards and should be stopped, the speed instruction is determined so as to be strictly less than zero.

  • Publication number: 20220194392
    Abstract: A method for estimating the speed of a motor vehicle includes defining a first speed threshold that corresponds to a minimum speed value supplied by a vehicle wheel angular speed sensor, defining a second speed threshold that is greater than the first, estimating low speed values when the vehicle is running below the first speed threshold by using an estimation method of adaptive filtered type, measuring high speed values when the vehicle is running above the second speed threshold by using vehicle speed values supplied by the wheel angular speed sensor, and in the intermediate zone between the first and second speed thresholds, mixing high speed with low speed.
