Title (EN) METHOD FOR PROVIDING ELECTRICAL PROPULSION ASSISTANCE IN A PEDAL-PROPELLED VEHICLE, AND CONTROLLER IMPLEMENTING SAME
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE FOURNITURE D'ASSISTANCE DE PROPULSION ÉLECTRIQUE DANS UN VÉHICULE À PÉDALES, ET DISPOSITIF DE COMMANDE METTANT EN ŒUVRE CE DERNIER
Abstract:
(EN) The invention pertains to a method for providing assistance in a pedal vehicle having an electric motor, an actuator, and a control unit configured to provide control signals to said electric motor and said actuator based on a crank axle input. The pedals, electric motor, and actuator are configured to propel the vehicle via a drive train. The method comprises: detecting as a take-off attempt, the simultaneous occurrence of at least the following conditions: vehicle at stand-still and forward torque being applied to the pedals; permitting during said take-off attempt a forward rotation of said pedals; and providing supporting torque after detection of said take-off attempt. Appropriate control signals are provided to the motor and actuator to apply a predetermined countertorque to the pedals during the forward rotation and appropriate control signals are provided to the motor and actuator to provide supporting torque when a predetermined take-off criterion is met. The invention also pertains to a computer program product, a controller, and a vehicle.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de fourniture d'assistance dans un véhicule à pédales présentant un moteur électrique, un actionneur et une unité de commande configurée pour fournir des signaux de commande audit moteur électrique et audit actionneur sur la base d'une entrée d'axe de pédalier. Les pédales, le moteur électrique et l'actionneur sont configurés pour propulser le véhicule par l'intermédiaire d'une transmission. Le procédé consiste : à détecter, en tant que tentative de démarrage, l'occurrence simultanée d'au moins les conditions suivantes : un véhicule est au repos et un couple avant est appliqué aux pédales ; une rotation vers l'avant desdites pédales est permise pendant ladite tentative de démarrage ; et un couple de support est fourni après la détection de ladite tentative de démarrage. Des signaux de commande appropriés sont fournis au moteur et à l'actionneur pour appliquer un contre-couple prédéterminé aux pédales pendant la rotation vers l'avant et des signaux de commande appropriés sont fournis au moteur et à l'actionneur pour fournir un couple de support lorsqu'un critère de démarrage prédéterminé est rempli. L'invention concerne également un produit-programme d'ordinateur, un dispositif de commande et un véhicule.
