20090012686 | Braking-Driving Force Control Device of Vehicle - When either one of a vehicle target braking/driving force and a target yaw moment cannot be achieved by a braking/driving forces of wheels, a distribution ratio is calculated to be a small value as a value indicating an acceleration or deceleration operation by a driver increases, and to be a great value as a value indicating a steering operation by a driver increases, for example. A straight line closest to a point of the target braking/driving force and the target yaw moment is specified, among sides of a quadrangle or hexagon indicating a range of the braking/driving force and yaw moment attainable by the braking/driving forces of the wheels in a rectangular coordinate of the braking/driving force and the vehicle yaw moment. The value of the coordinate at the target point, which is an internally dividing point of the straight line based upon the distribution ratio, is defined as the target braking/driving force after the modification and the target yaw moment after the modification, whereby the target braking/driving force and the target yaw moment are modified with the ratio based upon the condition of the driving operation by a driver. | 01-08-2009 |

20090012687 | BRAKING-DRIVING FORCE CONTROL DEVICE OF VEHICLE - According to the present invention, when a target braking/driving force and a vehicle target yaw moment required to a vehicle cannot be achieved through a control of a braking/driving forces of wheels, in a rectangular coordinate of the braking/driving force and the yaw moment, a polygon indicating the maximum range of the braking/driving force and the yaw moment attainable by the braking/driving forces of the wheels, and an ellipse that crosses each side of the polygon and has a major axis and a minor axis aligning with the coordinate axis of the rectangular coordinate are set, for example. The target braking/driving force and the target yaw moment are modified to the values at the coordinate of the point, which is closer to the origin, of a point of intersection of a segment linking a point indicating the target braking/driving force and the target yaw moment and the origin, and the polygon, and a point of intersection of a segment linking a point indicating the target braking/driving force and the target yaw moment and the origin, and the ellipse. | 01-08-2009 |

20090051216 | WHEEL BRAKE/DRIVE FORCE CONTROL DEVICE - An object of the present invention is to achieve a braking-driving force and a yaw moment required for a vehicle to a possible extent within a range of braking-driving forces which the front and rear wheels can generate, when a target braking-driving force and a target yaw moment of the vehicle cannot be achieved by means of braking-driving forces that can be generated by the individual wheels. A target braking-driving force Fvn and a target yaw moment Mvn of the entire vehicle are calculated, and when the target braking-driving force Fvn and the target yaw moment Mvn cannot be achieved by means of the braking-driving forces of the front wheels, a target braking-driving force Fvft and a target yaw moment Mvft of the front wheels are adjusted such that the magnitudes of the braking-driving force and yaw moment of the vehicle produced by means of the braking-driving forces of the front wheels become the maximum at a ratio between Fvn and Mvn. A target braking-driving force Fvrt and a target yaw moment Mvrt of the rear wheels are calculated on the basis of Fvn, Mvn, Fvft, and Mvft, and similar adjustment is performed for them when necessarily. | 02-26-2009 |

20090108671 | VEHICLE DRIVE APPARATUS - A vehicle drive apparatus independently controls drive forces for a front-right drive wheel, a front-left drive wheel, a rear-right drive wheel, and a rear-left drive wheel using a front-right electric motor, a front-left electric motor, a rear-right electric motor, and a rear-left electric motor, respectively. The drive forces for the drive wheels of a vehicle incorporating the vehicle drive apparatus are determined based on the target moments in the yaw and roll directions of the vehicle, the total drive for the drive wheels, and the drive reaction forces at the drive wheels. Thus, the performance desired by the driver can be achieved, and the drivability therefore improves accordingly. | 04-30-2009 |

20090236905 | BRAKING-DRIVING FORCE CONTROL DEVICE OF VEHICLE - According to the present invention, when at least one of a target braking/driving force and a vehicle target yaw moment required to a vehicle cannot be achieved by a braking/driving forces of wheels, a target braking/driving force after a modification and a target yaw moment after a modification are calculated to be values attainable by the braking/driving forces of the wheels. When the magnitudes of the target braking/driving force after a modification and the target yaw moment after the modification exceed the corresponding limit value, these magnitudes are limited to the limit values. Alternatively, when the magnitudes of rates of change of the target braking/driving force after a modification and the target yaw moment after the modification exceed the corresponding limited rates of change, these magnitudes of the rates of change are limited to the limited rates of change. | 09-24-2009 |

20100174463 | VEHICLE BRAKING/DRIVING FORCE CONTROL APPARATUS - A vehicle target braking/driving force and a vehicle target yaw moment to be achieved by a control of braking/driving force of each wheel are-calculated. The target yaw moment is corrected, for example, so as to coincide with the product of the correction coefficient determined based upon, the weight of the whole vehicle, the longitudinal and lateral distribution ratios of wheel vertical loads, and vehicle turning direction, and the target yaw moment, whereby the target yaw moment is corrected in accordance with the weight of the whole vehicle, the position of center of gravity of the whole vehicle, and vehicle turning direction. The final target braking/driving force and target yaw moment that can be achieved by the control of the braking/driving force of each wheel are calculated on the basis of the target braking/driving force and the target yaw moment after the correction, and the braking/driving force of each wheel is controlled so as to achieve the final target braking/driving force and target yaw moment. | 07-08-2010 |
