  • Publication number: 20220242412
    Abstract: When a vehicle control interface receives information indicating “Forward” from a VP, the vehicle control interface sets a value 0 in a signal indicating a rotation direction of a wheel. When the vehicle control interface receives information indicating “Reverse” from the VP, the vehicle control interface sets a value 1 in the signal indicating the rotation direction of the wheel. When the vehicle control interface receives information indicating “Invalid value” from the VP, the vehicle control interface sets a value 3 in the signal indicating the rotation direction of the wheel. The vehicle control interface provides the signal indicating the rotation direction of the wheel to an ADK.

  • Publication number: 20220244733
    Abstract: When a vehicle control interface receives information indicating “Standstill” from a VP, the vehicle control interface sets a value 2 in a signal indicating an actual moving direction (a signal indicating a moving direction of a vehicle). When the number of wheels rotating in a forward rotation direction is larger than two, the vehicle control interface sets a value 0 in the signal indicating the actual moving direction. When the number of wheels rotating in a reverse rotation direction is larger than two, the vehicle control interface sets a value 1 in the signal indicating, the actual moving direction. When the number of wheels rotating in the forward rotation direction is equal to the number of wheels rotating in the reverse rotation direction, the vehicle control interface sets a value 3 in the signal indicating the actual moving direction. The vehicle control interface provides the signal indicating the actual moving direction to an ADK.

  • Publication number: 20220242456
    Abstract: A vehicle is a vehicle on which an autonomous driving kit (ADK) is mountable. The vehicle includes: a vehicle platform (VP) that controls the vehicle in accordance with an instruction from the ADK; and a vehicle control interface that serves as an interface between the ADK and the VP. The VP receives a driver deceleration request in accordance with an amount of depression of a brake pedal by a driver, and receives a system deceleration request from the ADK through the vehicle control interface. During an autonomous mode, the VP specifies the sum of the driver deceleration request and the system deceleration request as a target deceleration of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11387758
    Abstract: A motor controller estimates an initial position of a magnetic pole of a rotor of a brushless DC motor in an inductive sensing scheme. The motor controller controls a drive circuit to apply an AC voltage to a stator winding at a first energization angle, and subsequently to apply an AC voltage to the stator winding at a second energization angle before a residual current flowing through the stator winding returns to zero. At each energization angle, the motor controller corrects a peak value of a current in the stator winding based on the residual current detected immediately before a voltage is applied to the stator winding or at a time when voltage application to the stator winding is started. Based on the corrected peak value, the control circuit estimates the initial position of the magnetic pole of the rotor.
