Development of a Motor Control Algorithm Used in a Shift-by-Wire System
This thesis was done at DaimlerChrysler AG in Stuttgart, Germany. The
aim of the thesis is to develop an algorithm for controlling a motor
used in a Shift-by-Wire System. The control algorithm is to be
implemented in a prototype car for further testing.
The Shift-by-Wire System can be described as follows: An electrical
actuator is mounted in an automatic gearbox to select gears instead of
the gear stick. The actuator is controlled by a microcontroller, which
runs a control algorithm. The position of the actuator is measured
with a linear position sensor and sent to the controller.
