Low Cost Electronic Vehicle Starting Device 840307

A two pedal drive device has been developped, using a standard dry clutch, an electric motor as an actuator and a microprocessor control. With the help of a compensator spring, a low power, low inertia motor with a fast response can be used. The control characteristic is basically a centrifugal law, with several modifications. Several sensors input information into the microprocessor and compensate for manufacturing tolerances and lining wear. The Electronic Clutch Control has been fitted to different cars and has given optimal results. It can be used in conjunction with manual transmissions, CVTs or other types of transmissions.
