  • Patent number: 9389616
    Abstract: Provided is a driving force control device for a four-wheel-drive vehicle that can evade an occurrence of excessive understeer and oversteer in situations unintended by the driver, by appropriately controlling driving forces to be distributed to sub-drive wheels. The driving force distribution device of the four-wheeled vehicle controls driving force to be distributed to the rear wheels (Wr, Wr) by the clutch (10) for front-and-rear torque distribution so that the wheels (Wf, Wf) are main drive wheels and the rear wheels (Wr, Wr) are sub-drive wheels. The driving force distribution device is adapted to perform control to restrict the upper limit of the four-wheel drive torque based upon an estimated driving force and steering angle of the vehicle, when calculating four-wheel drive torque to be distributed to the rear wheels (Wr, Wr) by the driving force distribution device (10).

  • Patent number: 8666628
    Abstract: A torque distribution control apparatus for a four-wheel drive vehicle includes a vehicle-speed detector configured to detect a vehicle speed of the vehicle. A wheel-speed detector is configured to detect wheel speeds of main driving wheels and sub-driving wheels of the vehicle. A sub-driving-wheel distribution-torque calculator is configured to calculate a sub-driving-wheel distribution torque in accordance with a rotation speed difference between the main driving wheels and the sub-driving wheels calculated based on an output from the wheel-speed detector. A torque limiter is configured to limit an upper limit of the sub-driving-wheel distribution torque. A controller is configured to control the sub-driving-wheel distribution torque to be transmitted to the right and left sub-driving wheels by right and left torque distribution clutches in accordance with a driving state of the vehicle.
