  • Patent number: 10711895
    Abstract: A control apparatus for a vehicle transmission that includes: transmission gears disposed on a shaft; a switching mechanism which is to be switched between a connecting state in which one of the transmission gears is rotatable integrally with the shaft and a disconnecting state in which the one of the transmission gears is rotatable relative to the shaft; a shift fork for axially moving the switching mechanism; and a shift barrel to be rotated to position the shift fork. The switching mechanism includes first and second rings and an elastic member which is disposed between the first and second rings in the axial direction and connects the first and second rings. The control apparatus determines that a failure occurs in the vehicle transmission, when a value related to a reaction force that acts on the shift barrel during rotation of the shift barrel is deviated from a predetermined range.

  • Publication number: 20190353276
    Abstract: The piezoelectric actuator includes a piezoelectric element; a power supply applying a voltage to the piezoelectric element; a drive circuit that applies a voltage from the power supply to the piezoelectric element by a pulse charge signal and a discharge signal to charge, and discharges the charge charged in the piezoelectric element to drive the piezoelectric element; an abnormality detection circuit that detects an abnormality due to insulation failure of the piezoelectric element, and a control unit that determines whether or not the piezoelectric element is normal based on an abnormality detection signal. The abnormality detection circuit outputs the abnormality detection signal that detects a time corresponding to a period from when a current starts to flow to the piezoelectric element during charging to when a current stops to flow, and it is determined that the piezoelectric element is abnormal when the time is equal to or more than a set time.
