BRAKE CONTROL SYSTEM


  1. SYSTEM CONTROL


    1. The TRC helps prevent the drive wheels from slipping if the driver depresses the accelerator pedal excessively when starting off or accelerating on a slippery surface. Simultaneously with the hydraulic brake control of the drive wheels, the skid control ECU makes a request to the EV control ECU to effect motive force control. This produces the motive force that suits the driving conditions, in order to ensure the proper start-off acceleration.
