GVC: WHY AND HOW?Jan 16th , 2019
Progress of philosophy Jinba Ittai
Mazda aims to offer its customers vehicles that provide driving pleasure and enrich their lives. We achieved this goal by continuing the Jinba Ittai concept, concept that the driver and the vehicle are one. Vector control force g is the first technology in the SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS series and is part of the series of SKYACTIV technologies. The SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS technologies have been developed to provide an integrated control of the engine, gearbox, chassis and bodywork to increase the Jinba Ittai feeling of the vehicle: a connection feeling between the car and the driver distinguishes the Mazda vehicles of other vehicles.
Increase the performance of the chassis using the SKYACTIV engine.
Vector control g force is made possible only through the existence of SKYACTIV engines, which provide precise control of the engine torque, and with the SKYACTIV-CHASSIS chassis, which provides the vehicle holding a perfect road. The G-vector control (GVC) optimizes tire performance by concentrating the vertical load on the tires. When the driver changes direction, the vector-control G (GVC) varies the torque to create a deceleration g force and transferring the load to the front wheels. This has the effect of increasing adhesion of the front wheels to the road surface, thus improving the response of the vehicle when cornering.
Thereafter, when the driver maintains a constant steering angle, the G-vector control (GVC) immediately restores the engine torque, which transfers the load to the rear wheels, improving stability.
This series of charge transfer provides a much better grip front and rear wheels to the pavement, which aligns response and stability of the vehicle to the driver’s intentions.
A natural feeling of control based on a human-centered development philosophy.
Mazda’s engineers studied the biomechanical relationship between man and moving vehicles to refine the vector control system of g-force to promote optimal harmonious interaction. They lined the rate of reaction and control niveua on human sensibilities.
BENEFITS G-VECTOR CONTROL (GVC)
The stresses at the wheel allow the driver to keep the vehicle in its lane, either straight or in curves. However, due to erratic and undulating road pavement, the vehicle is not always in his way as expected, forcing the driver to make adjustments to management.
Since the G-vector control (GVC) provides improved response to the slightest stress of driving, it has the effect of greatly reducing the size and frequency of adjustments to management.
The G-vector control (GVC) is as effective in reducing fatigue in the driver and passengers. Fatigue felt by the driver intensifies as and when it needs to make minor corrections to management. Since the G-vector control (GVC) helps reduce the number of corrections, it reduces fatigue during long trips. Moreover, by making transfers more fluid force g, the vector-control G (GVC) suppresses the swaying of the head and torso suffered by vehicle occupants, allowing them to enjoy a more comfortable ride.
