Title: APPARATUS, METHOD AND COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR CONTROLLING A VEHICLE
Abstract:
A method, apparatus and computer program for controlling connection of a driveline within a vehicle (1), the method comprising: detecting a deceleration and/or brake demand while the vehicle is operating in a coasting mode and the vehicle speed is above a threshold speed, determining whether the driveline can be reconnected within a threshold time and controlling the driveline so that the driveline is not reconnected if it is determined that the driveline cannot be reconnected within the threshold time. The method alternatively comprising detecting a deceleration and/or brake demand while the vehicle is operating in a coasting mode and the vehicle speed is above a threshold speed, determining the vehicle's deceleration, determining a threshold deceleration, determining whether the vehicle's deceleration is greater or less than the threshold deceleration and controlling the driveline so that the driveline is not reconnected if the vehicle's deceleration is greater than the threshold deceleration.
