Title:
APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION AND PROGRAM FOR PERFORMING THE CONTROL METHOD
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2008044143
Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
The present invention relates an apparatus and method for controlling a CVT (500) (continuously variable transmission), and a program for executing the control method that reduces a transmission shock during a braking operation. When a foot brake switch (916) is turned on and a vehicle speed is less than or equal to a threshold speed V(O), the ECU (900) increases a clamping pressure applied to a transmission belt (510) to a pressure level P(ON) higher than a normal pressure P(OFF). When the vehicle speed falls to or below the threshold speed V(O) when the foot brake switch (916) is turned on, the ECU (900) prohibits an increase in the clamping pressure applied to the transmission belt (510).
