  • Patent number: 11958471
    Abstract: A four-wheel drive vehicle includes: a drive-power distribution device for distributing a drive power from an engine to main and auxiliary drive wheels with a drive-power distribution ratio between the main drive wheels and auxiliary drive wheels; and a control apparatus for controlling an electric motor such that the drive-power distribution ratio becomes a target distribution ratio value, by setting an electric-current command value for driving an electric motor. The control apparatus is configured, in a drive-power transmitted state in which the drive power is transmitted to the drive-power distribution device, to execute a command-value reduction control operation for causing the electric motor to be driven with the electric-current command value being set to a value smaller than in a drive-power non-transmitted state in which the drive power is not being transmitted to the drive-power distribution device.

  • Publication number: 20240084753
    Abstract: A control device and method controls a vehicle having an internal combustion engine connected to an automatic transmission via a torque converter with a lockup device. The torque of the internal combustion engine is limited the by a torque limit value based on a speed difference between an input rotational speed and an output rotational speed of the torque converter during acceleration in a non-lockup state. The torque-limiting of the internal combustion engine is prohibited torque-limiting upon a prescribed condition being met. The prescribed condition is met by a heating request, during hill climbing/towing, during travel at high vehicle speeds, when the accelerator pedal opening angle exceeds or is equal to a prescribed opening angle, when the torque limit value is greater than a target torque, in a range other than a D range, or in a mode other than normal mode.

  • Publication number: 20240083346
    Abstract: A gating camera divides a field of view in a depth direction into multiple slices, and generates multiple slice images that correspond to the multiple slices. An illumination apparatus emits illumination light. A camera controller controls a light emission timing of the illumination apparatus and an exposure timing of an image sensor so as to generate slice images from a near slice to a farther slice. An arithmetic processing device judges whether a road surface appears for each of the slice images generated in sequence. Processing for a row judged to include a road surface in a given slice is simplified at the time of sensing of a slice farther than the given slice.
