Programmable Drive-by-Wire Throttle Controller for In-Vehicle Use 2008-01-0234

This paper reviews the development and application of an in-vehicle programmable drive-by-wire throttle controller. The system is comprised of commercially available hardware and utilizes a laptop PC for control. Real-time control feedback is achieved through integration with the vehicle CAN bus. As a result, the system delivers intelligent, precise, and highly repeatable throttle control for a wide variety of in-vehicle tests. Ultimately, this system serves as a great aid to the test engineer by eliminating driver variation, thus leading to superior test execution and straightforward data analysis.
