Torque vectoring system

  • 14-Feb-2013 01:49 EST

Applus+ IDIADA’s torque vectoring system is a motion control module that distributes drive torque between the vehicle’s individual wheels depending on the driver’s inputs and road conditions. The company's iTORQ project (including an electric vehicle demonstrator based on a Toyota Urban Cruiser 4WD with four electric motors) has been developed to meet the latest needs of the automotive industry in three key areas. The first is to deliver interactive driving dynamics that allow the driver to select the type of vehicle feel he/she wants. Second is to provide the latest driver safety by reducing vehicle instability in avoidance maneuvers. And last is to provide intelligent energy efficiency strategies by ensuring the minimum energy is used to power the vehicle. iTORQ has been developed as an open-architecture platform using the latest MATLAB/Simulink/Stateflow toolchain. Rapid-prototyping tools, including automatic code generation, have been used to speed up software development. This, together with its open architecture, means that iTORQ can be easily integrated in most vehicle controllers, according to the company.
