Hill Start Assistance

Assisting starting off on a slope

This technology allows drivers to change pedals easily from the brake to the accelerator and carry out a safer hill start.

1. The driver releases their foot from the brake pedal. The car remains at a standstill for a maximum of two seconds.

2. The driver changes pedals to the accelerator while the car is at a standstill.

Technology Functionality

When a driver changes pedals from the brake to the accelerator in order to start the car on a slope, the system maintains the brake pressure for a maximum of two seconds after the driver’s foot has left the brake pedal. By keeping the car at a standstill even when not pressing down on the brake, the system helps to prevent against rolling backwards when starting off on a slope.

Technology Configuration

An acceleration sensor using VDC (vehicle dynamic control) detects when the vehicle is on a slope. It does not engage at a place that seems close to a flat road. When a slope is detected by the acceleration sensor, the brake pressure applied by the driver stepping on the brake pedal is maintained for a maximum of two seconds after the driver releases their foot. When the driver operates the accelerator, the brake pressure is unlocked.
