  • Patent number: 11203349
    Abstract: If a controller determines the calculation of a measured vehicle body velocity is possible, the controller calculates the measured vehicle body velocity as an estimated vehicle body velocity to conduct update processing for a K table and an AB table. If the controller determines the calculation of the measured vehicle body velocity is impossible, the controller extracts a conversion coefficient from the K table based on a detected running state while extracting a sensitivity coefficient and an offset coefficient from the AB table based on the temperature by a temperature sensor. The vehicle mounted apparatus calculates an axle pulse-based vehicle body velocity from the extracted conversion coefficient while calculating an acceleration-based vehicle body velocity from the extracted sensitivity coefficient and offset coefficient.
