  • Patent number: 10647320
    Abstract: A device and a method for controlling vehicle speed in a vehicle equipped with cruise control while traveling downhill. The method involves driving a vehicle downhill with the cruise control set to a brake speed; detecting a current vehicle speed; applying the auxiliary brake to maintain the brake speed; detecting a request for a downshift from a current gear to a lower gear; and determining if a downshift is permissible at the current speed. If a downshift is not permissible, then a control unit automatically applies the service brakes to retard the vehicle speed; retarding the vehicle from a current speed to a lower speed at which a downshift to a lower gear is permissible; and performing a downshift to a lower gear when the second vehicle speed is reached. The cruise control is set to a second brake speed lower than the first brake speed.

  • Patent number: 10640119
    Abstract: A method to control a powertrain in a vehicle during an acceleration is provided, the powertrain including a propulsion unit, a multi-clutch transmission drivingly connected to the propulsion unit, and a control unit for controlling at least the powertrain components, which control unit is provided with a prediction model including at least one simulated shift sequence for the multi-clutch transmission. The method involves monitoring at least one operating parameter of the powertrain; estimating the time (tE) between initiation of a first power upshift and initiation of a sequential second power upshift using the prediction model; and, if the estimated time is shorter than a predetermined time limit (tLIM), controlling the propulsion unit to limit the vehicle acceleration so that the time between the first and second power upshifts is increased to be at least equal to the predetermined time limit (tLIM).

  • Patent number: 10576950
    Abstract: A device and a method for controlling vehicle speed in a vehicle equipped with brake cruise control when the vehicle is travelling downhill are provided. The method involves driving a vehicle downhill with the brake set speed set to a first brake set speed; detecting a current vehicle speed; automatically applying a brake torque using at least an auxiliary brake to maintain the first brake set speed; and detecting a manual application of a vehicle service brake, in order to decrease vehicle speed. If a control unit detects that the driver is applying the service brake, then the control unit is automatically arranged to set the brake set speed to a second brake set speed that is lower than the first brake set speed; and to apply a brake torque using at least the auxiliary brake if a detected current vehicle speed exceeds the second brake set speed.

  • Patent number: 10569775
    Abstract: A cruise control arrangement is provided with a cruise control speed function and where the cruise control arrangement is provided with a set cruise speed value and a set brake cruise speed value, and where the cruise control brake function is active when the vehicle travels downhill, where the cruise control arrangement is adapted to activate at least one auxiliary brake when the vehicle speed reaches the set brake cruise speed, to apply a service brake of the vehicle in order to reduce the speed of the vehicle to a predefined first speed if the vehicle speed exceeds the set brake cruise speed when the least one auxiliary brake is delivering full brake power, where the predefined first speed is lower than the set brake cruise speed. Undesired acceleration during downhill travel can be avoided when the brake power of the auxiliary brake is not sufficient. Further, a required downshift can be delayed, which will improve the fuel consumption of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20200059901
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for allocating radio resources in a wireless communication system (100). According to the method, at a base station (101), a first radio resource for a communication between the base station (101) and a relaying device (104) is determined. The relaying device (104) is configured to relay information between the base station (101) and at least one communication device (301) of the wireless communication system (100) located within a wireless communication range of the relaying device (104). Furthermore, a second radio resource for a communication between the relaying device (104) and the at least one communication device (301) is determined at the base station (101). A message (503) is transmitted from the base station (101) to the relaying device (104). The message (503) comprises information indicating the first radio resource and information indicating the second radio resource.

  • Patent number: 10377384
    Abstract: A method is provided for controlling a drivetrain of a vehicle, wherein the drivetrain comprises a multi-clutch transmission. The gear shift of the multi-clutch transmission is adapted to be performed either by power cut shift or by power shift dependent on predetermined vehicle shift conditions. The method includes detecting at least one of a plurality of indications of slippery road conditions and setting a slip risk factor, wherein the slip risk factor is dependent on the indication of slippery road conditions. If the slip risk factor is above a first predetermined threshold value the method further comprises controlling the multi-clutch transmission such that an upcoming gear shift is performed as a power-shift independently of if upcoming shift was determined to be performed as a power-cut shift or as a power shift.

The dual clutch transmission is adapted to be set into different gear-combinations, each including an active gear selection through which torque can be transmitted, and a passive gear selection through which no torque can be transmitted. In a pre-set number of gear-combinations, the first input shaft and the main shaft have a synchronised rotation. When an engine braking operation is performed when the transmission is set in one of the pre-set number of gear-combinations modifying said engine braking operation such that a damaging load upon said spigot bearing is reduced.
