  • Patent number: 10330172
    Abstract: A hydraulic mount for a vehicle shock absorber includes a first housing portion, a second housing portion, an orifice plate and a diaphragm connected together to define a first chamber and a second chamber in the hydraulic mount. A first resilient member disposed on the orifice plate defines a first sub-chamber in the first chamber and a second resilient member disposed on the orifice plate defines a second sub-chamber in the second chamber.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20070162212
    Abstract: The invention concerns a method for estimating in real time, in a motor vehicle, a front force (FyV) and a rear force (FyR), these forces being applied by the ground to the front wheels and to the rear wheels, respectively, of the vehicle along a transverse direction. The method consists in: equipping this vehicle with a measuring device supplying a signal representative of a measured transverse acceleration (?T) and a signal representative of a measured yaw rate (?T), and with a processing unit; applying to these signals a processing operation to determine a front force and a rear force based on a dynamic model of the vehicle such as a model of the bicycle type. The invention applies to the field of active safety.

  • Patent number: 5390118
    Abstract: An improved automatic lateral guidance control system for guiding moving vehicles is provided which includes a sensing subsystem for viewing an area in front of a vehicle, a plurality of energy radiating or energy reflective devices disposed adjacent a predetermined length of road, an apparatus for translating the radiated or reflected information from the viewed area into coordinate data representing an approximation of the predetermined path along the road, and a vehicle controller for determining the vehicle's heading with respect to the approximated path and providing an output control signal to correct the vehicle's heading with respect to the approximated path. The system uses past and present position data to calculate a predetermined path for the vehicle. Gain factors and comfort factors are determined to maximize comfort to passengers of the system and to optimize performance of the system.
