  • Publication number: 20200314610
    Abstract: A vehicle control system includes: a vehicle near field communication unit that communicates via a near field communication path; a vehicle network communication unit that communicates via a global communication path; a control ECU; a transmission control unit that transmits control commands received by the vehicle near field communication unit and the vehicle network communication unit to the control ECU that controls actions of the vehicle; and a control command detection unit that detects whether or not there are a plurality of same control commands received within a prescribed time. When the control command detection unit detects a plurality of control commands received within the prescribed time, the transmission control unit transmits the control commands in order according to a prescribed priority order, and the control ECU processes the control commands received from the transmission control unit in a received order to control the actions of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190193523
    Abstract: An electric vehicle includes an electric motor, a power storage device, a control device, and a refrigerant circuit. The refrigerant circuit includes a compressor, an outdoor heat exchanger, an expansion valve, a first indoor heat exchanger, and a heating decompression valve. The heating decompression valve changes a passage resistance between the compressor and the outdoor heat exchanger. The control device increases the passage resistance by the heating decompression valve when the remaining capacity of the power storage device is equal to or larger than a predetermined value.

  • Patent number: 9007034
    Abstract: An electric power generation control system for a vehicle, which enables generation of electric power by a generator as much as possible while preventing an electrical component from being overheated by power generation by the generator. The electric power generation control system selectively switches a mode of the generator between first and second modes in which an instruction voltage is higher and not higher than an allowable voltage of a wire harness, respectively. A counter value is counted up in the first mode and down in the second mode. When the counter value has reached a higher limit value, the first mode is inhibited and the power generation mode is set to the second mode. This increase the proportion of an execution time period of the first, and accordingly, when a possibility of overheating the wire harness becomes high, the instruction voltage is lowered.
