  • Publication number: 20200282963
    Abstract: A braking force control apparatus has an upstream braking actuator for generating an upstream pressure common to four wheels, a downstream braking actuator individually controlling braking pressures supplied to braking force generating devices of the wheels using the upstream pressure, and a control unit. When the downstream braking actuator is abnormal and the upstream pressure can be supplied to the braking force generating devices, but a braking pressure of any one of the wheels cannot be normally reduced, the control unit selects higher one of the target braking pressures of the left and right front wheels and higher one of the left and right rear wheels, determines lower one of the two selected target braking pressures as a backup target upstream pressure, and controls the upstream braking actuator such that the upstream pressure becomes the backup target upstream pressure.

  • Publication number: 20200094798
    Abstract: A brake ECU sets target slippage degrees of three wheels other than the front outer wheel to the slippage degree of the front outer wheel and feedback-controls the braking forces of the three wheels such that the actual slippage degrees of the three wheels approach the target slippage degrees. The brake ECU computes a correction amount for the slip ratio deviation of the front inner wheel such that the slip ratio deviation becomes zero. The brake ECU multiplies the correction amount for the slip ratio deviation by a load ratio and uses the resultant value as a correction amount for the slip ratio deviation of the rear inner wheel. The brake ECU corrects the slip ratio deviation by using the computed correction amount.

  • Patent number: 10509933
    Abstract: In a method, whether there is a first bar having a width and located at at least one of both ends of a first black and white pattern is determined. The width of the bar is greater than a maximum width of a second bar. The maximum width of the second bar appears in a second black and white pattern assuming that the black and white pattern is part of the first barcode. The first black and white pattern is determined as readout data of the second barcode when it is determined that there is the first bar having the width greater than the maximum width of the second bar and located at at least one of both ends of the first black and white pattern.

  • Patent number: 10471939
    Abstract: A braking control apparatus performs right and left wheel independent control to approach a slip rate of a rear-right wheel and a rear-left wheel to a target slip rate as an average of slip rates of a front-right wheel and a front-left wheel. In a high-speed range, right and left wheel independent control is started when a deceleration is equal to or larger than a start value that is smaller than a start value used in a low-speed range. In right and left wheel independent control started in the high-speed range, when there is a demand to increase braking pressures of both the rear-right wheel and the rear-left wheel, the braking pressure of the rear wheel located on the outside during the occurrence of deflection of the vehicle resulting from braking is increased, and the braking pressure of the rear wheel located on the inside is prohibited from increasing.
