Abstract
(EN)
A vehicle, such as an automobile, is provided with friction (1) and regenerative (3,4,5) braking systems. A sensor (15) detects an obstacle in the vehicle's path and a brake controller (5), when operated by a user, automatically deploys either or both braking systems to decelerate the vehicle so that its speed corresponds to that of the obstacle when the vehicle is a predetermined distance from the obstacle. The brake controller is arranged to deploy the braking systems in order to optimise recovery of kinetic energy by the regenerative braking system. The brake controller may be operated in a standard mode, in which it deploys the braking systems to provide a retarding force on the vehicle which depends on a driver's input. The brake controller may be controlled by a brake pedal (9). The pedal may have a position part way along its travel at which resistance to further travel temporarily increases and operation of the pedal beyond that position causes the brake controller to operate in the standard mode.

La présente invention se rapporte à un véhicule, tel qu'une automobile, qui comprend des systèmes de freinage mécanique (1) et par récupération (3, 4, 5). Un capteur (15) détecte un obstacle sur le trajet du véhicule, et un dispositif de commande de frein (5) déploie automatiquement, lorsqu'il est actionné par un utilisateur, l'un ou l'autre des systèmes de freinage, ou les deux, afin de décélérer le véhicule de telle sorte que sa vitesse corresponde à celle de l'obstacle lorsque le véhicule se trouve à une distance prédéterminée de l'obstacle. Le dispositif de commande de frein est agencé pour déployer les systèmes de freinage afin d'optimiser la récupération de l'énergie cinétique par le système de freinage par récupération. Le dispositif de commande de frein peut être actionné en mode normal dans lequel il déploie les systèmes de freinage pour fournir une force de ralentissement sur le véhicule qui dépend d'une entrée du conducteur. Le dispositif de commande de frein peut être commandé par une pédale de frein (9). La pédale peut présenter en partie au cours de sa course une position où une résistance à une course supplémentaire augmente temporairement, et le fonctionnement de la pédale au-delà de cette position provoque le fonctionnement du dispositif de commande de frein en mode normal.
