Anti- Rollback Function for Electric Vehicles without HSA/ABS System 2024-26-0096

In high-end commercial vehicles, technologies like Electronic Braking Systems (EBS) help pull away the vehicle from a standstill on steep gradients with no risk of rolling back. Tata Motors has developed an indigenous Anti-Roll Back (ARB) system that effectively minimizes this risk but without the use of EBS/HSA. The ARB delivers identical functionality to the HSA feature in the EBS but autonomously, and by purely electric means. In the proposed system, the electric traction motor develops a high positive torque when the vehicle tries to roll back upon minimal accelerator pedal press. The system is autonomous in the sense that the driver does not need to press any HSA switch on the dashboard and the system works on relatively flatter road also which otherwise is not the case with HSA as it negatively affects the operation on flatter road by locking wheels and vehicle launches with a very high torque when brakes are automatically released by EBS upon threshold torque build-up. The launch issue of the vehicle with/without HSA switch on low-grade road profile is also taken care by the proposed solution.
