  • Patent number: 10328942
    Abstract: A motor vehicle controller configured to: receive a drive demand signal indicating an amount of net drive to be applied to one or more driving wheels of a vehicle, estimate a value of a parameter indicative of a surface coefficient of friction between one or more driving wheels and a driving surface, and apply a net torque to one or more wheels of a vehicle. The amount of net torque applied is determined in dependence at least in part on the received drive demand signal. The controller is configured to increase an amount of net torque applied to one or more driving wheels independently of the drive demand signal and to update an estimate of the parameter in dependence on a change in speed of the at least one driving wheel when the amount of net torque applied to the at least one driving wheel is increased.

  • Publication number: 20190138238
    Abstract: Direct data transfer between devices having a shared bus may be implemented with reduced involvement from a controller associated with the devices. A controller, a source memory device, and a target memory device may be coupled with a shared bus. The controller may identify a source address at the source memory device for data to be transferred to the target memory device. The controller also may identify a target address in the target memory device, and initiate a data transfer directly from the source to the target through a command that is received at both the source and the target memory device. In response to the command, the source memory device may read data out to the bus, and the target memory may read the data from the bus and store the data starting at the target address without further commands from the controller.

  • Publication number: 20190089271
    Abstract: A method for controlling a braking system of an electromagnetic motor, the electromagnetic motor having a moveable output shaft, comprising the steps of: receiving a velocity signal and/or an acceleration signal based on movement of the output shaft, said velocity signal and/or acceleration signal having a respective frequency spectrum; identifying an event from the velocity and/or the acceleration signal using the respective frequency spectrum, wherein said event corresponds to an uncontrolled movement of the output shaft and has a characteristic frequency spectrum.

  • Publication number: 20190089273
    Abstract: A method for preventing motion of an output shaft (401), of an electromagnetic motor comprising a coil assembly, when a mechanical brake (400) is released, comprising the steps of: determining the position of the output shaft (401); correlating the position of the output shaft (401) with a current such that when applied in the coil assembly induces a force on the output shaft (401) to prevent motion of the output shaft (401) when the mechanical brake (400) is released.
