  • Publication number: 20200141485
    Abstract: A vehicle control system and a method for a vehicle running on a low friction road inhibit repetitive gear shifts of a transmission of the vehicle. The vehicle control system of the vehicle includes: one or more sensors for sensing an engine speed of the vehicle, an engine oil temperature, a position of an accelerator pedal, a lateral acceleration of the vehicle, a rotational angle of a steering wheel, or whether a low friction road running mode switch is turned on or off; and a controller for receiving sensor data from the sensors. In particular, the controller determines whether the vehicle satisfies an entry condition for performing a repetitive shift prevention control based on the sensor data, and controls a gear shift of the transmission and an engine torque to inhibit the repetitive gear shifts of the vehicle when the downshift occurs when the vehicle has satisfied the entry condition.
