Torque Vectoring

After two years in development, our latest torque vectoring system makes use of an unique algorithm, which predicts how the vehicle will behave.

By reading the road ahead – using the car’s nine onboard cameras, LIDAR, radar and 12 ultrasonic sensors – the on-board supercomputer calculates the optimal level of torque to deploy to each independently driven wheel over 100 times a second.

Taking inspiration from the natural world, like the Cheetah’s ability to change direction in a split second, our system is capable of adjusting the torque output of each motor in both directions – acceleration and braking – resulting in exceptional levels of agility and control.

Compared to conventional systems, where hydraulic brakes are used to stabilise the vehicle, the R-AWTV makes use of all four electric motors to aid braking, replacing the need for ABS and ESP systems.

The time our latest R-AWTV has spent in development and testing

While conventional drivetrains are hindered by their slow reaction times and inability to control each wheel separately, our system develops levels of grip never seen before. More stable and safe while enabling a more agile and dynamic driving experience, R-AWTV allows the car to be configured in infinitely different ways, for any given situation.   

Next steps:

To conduct material and component tests ahead of system tests before commencing the full vehicle testing program. The aim is to find the closest correlation between simulations and physical tests.
