DRIVE-BY-WIRE CONTROL OUTLINE


BHE014000140T10

• The drive-by-wire control calculates the optimum target throttle valve opening angle at all ranges of engine speeds and controls the throttle valve actuator.

• The drive-by-wire control includes idle speed control, accelerator control, traction control, cruise control, and vehicle speed limiter.

Control Outline

Idle speed control
• Controls the throttle valve opening angle during idling so that the idle speed is at the target idle speed.
Accelerator control
• Controls the throttle valve opening angle according to the amount of AP depression. Has a fully-closed throttle learning function for consistent setting of the optimum throttle opening angle according to changes due to age deterioration.
Traction control
• Controls the throttle valve opening angle by torque up/down request signals from the DSC HU/CM and TCM (AT).
Cruise control
• Sets the vehicle speed by operation of the cruise control switch and controls the throttle valve opening angle so that it becomes close to the set vehicle speed.
Vehicle speed limiter (Except for European (L.H.D. U.K.) specs.)
• Controls the throttle valve opening angle to lower the vehicle speed when it exceeds the following speed:
– 18-inch tire: 231 km/h {143.5 mph}
– 16-inch tire: 211 km/h {131.1 mph}
