  • Patent number: 7702445
    Abstract: What is described is a control system for controlling the driving-away maneuver in a motor vehicle provided with a gearbox comprising a primary input shaft which can be coupled to a drive shaft of a propulsion system of the vehicle by means of a servo-assisted friction clutch, wherein a control unit receives at its input signals indicating a command imparted by the driver of the motor vehicle by operating the accelerator pedal, and generates—on the basis of a mathematical reference model—reference torque request signals indicating the reference torques requested from the drive shaft and from the friction clutch during the driving-away manoeuvre, and also generates—by comparison between signals indicating the estimated angular velocities of the drive shaft and of the primary gear shaft, and detected signals indicating the actual angular velocities of the drive shaft and of the primary gear shaft—corresponding corrective contributions, in such a way as to construct command signals for controlling torque actuato

  • Patent number: 7373233
    Abstract: What is described is a control system for controlling the coupling between a driveshaft of a motor vehicle propulsion system and a primary input shaft of a gearbox by means of a servo-assisted friction clutch. A control unit receives at its input signals indicating a command imparted by the driver of the motor vehicle by operating the accelerator pedal in a driving-away or gear-changing manoeuvre, and generates—on the basis of a mathematical reference model—reference torque request signals indicating the reference torques requested from the driveshaft and from the friction clutch, the said request signals or data varying in time in such a way as to cause synchronization between the angular velocities of the driveshaft and of the primary gear shaft to be reached at the same moment as the difference between the angular accelerations of the said shafts becomes zero.

  • Patent number: 6684145
    Abstract: An internal combustion engine (E) has associated control devices (ECU, GSCU, SCU) for controlling the engine in a manner such that the engine delivers a driving torque (CM) which is variable in dependence on predetermined measured parameters, in particular on the position (&agr;) of the accelerator pedal (AP), and sensors (S1, S2) for detecting the position (&agr;) of the accelerator pedal (AP), and the rate of rotation (&ohgr;M) of the shaft (M) of the engine (E) or the forward speed (v) of the motor vehicle, respectively.

  • Patent number: 6393351
    Abstract: The system comprises: devices operable to provide signals indicative of the angle of rotation of the steering wheel, the speed and the yaw rate of the vehicle, at well as the longitudinal acceleration and transverse acceleration of the vehicle on the basis of which a reference yaw rate is determined. A first yaw torque control signal is produced on the basis of a predetermined mathematical model of the behaviour of the motor vehicle and as a function of the determined reference value of the yaw rate. Control devices generate a second yaw torque control signal as a predetermined function of the longitudinal acceleration of the vehicle. A control circuit generates electrical piloting signals for actuator devices of the differential as a function of the first and second yaw rate control signals.

  • Patent number: 6389346
    Abstract: A system for controlling a servo-controlled gearbox (C), configured so as to use gear-shifting strategies similar to those used by a human driver so as to improve the driving sensation experienced by the driver. The control system uses a plurality of sensors (SENS) disposed in the vehicle for detecting the various operative conditions and a system of rules (a rule-based system) for implementing the strategies provided for.

  • Patent number: 6253139
    Abstract: The system includes a memory in which curves are stored which define the conditions for each gear change, corresponding to at least two reference styles of driving, sensors for operating parameters of the motor vehicle, and second processing devices set up to estimate the value of a first index which identifies the kind of driving of the motor vehicle and, respectively, the value of a second index which defines the manner or style of driving of the driver, and a processing and control unit.
