AWD coupling with vehicle dynamics software09 January 2019 | Automotive Manufacturing Solutions
BorgWarner claims it has tailored its latest electro-hydraulically actuated all-wheel drive AWD coupling technology to deliver a dynamic driving experience. The company says this unit is equipped with an integrated electronic control unit (ECU) featuring adaptable vehicle dynamics software. The electronically controlled multi-plate clutch uses data such as vehicle velocity and curve radius to distribute torque between the front and rear axle automatically without driver intervention.
Operating independently of the differential speed between the two axles, the AWD coupling can offer full locking torque at any given time and speed, depending on road conditions and vehicle load distribution, says BorgWarner. It is now being used on Lynk & Co’s first model the 01.
