Feb.2022, Toyota Research Institute (TRI) demonstrated a new research milestone in autonomy, providing a glimpse into the future of safer mobility for all.

As revealed in this video, TRI researchers successfully programmed a vehicle to autonomously drift around obstacles on a closed track - a world first. Combining a deep knowledge of both vehicle dynamics and control design, TRI’s Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC) approach extends the vehicle’s operational domain to the very limits of its performance. The idea behind this research is to utilize controlled, autonomous drifting to avoid accidents by navigating sudden obstacles or hazardous road conditions like black ice. 


“At TRI, our goal is to use advanced technologies that augment and amplify humans, not replace them,” said Avinash Balachandran, Senior Manager of TRI’s Human Centric Driving Research. “Through this project, we are expanding the region in which a car is controllable, with the goal of giving regular drivers the instinctual reflexes of a professional race car driver to be able to handle the most challenging emergencies and keep people safer on the road.” 


Every year, car crashes result in nearly 40,000 fatalities in the United States and about 1.35 million fatalities worldwide. While most crashes occur in mundane situations, in some extreme situations drivers may need to make maneuvers that take their vehicle close to and, at times, beyond normal limits of handling. 


One year ago, TRI and the Dynamic Design Lab at Stanford University set out to design a new level of active safety to help avoid crashes and prevent injuries and fatalities. With the support of automotive performance specialist GReddy and drift legend Ken Gushi, today’s achievement is another step in that journey. By building skills comparable to an expert driver, this technology can amplify and augment a regular driver’s ability to respond to dangerous and extreme situations, helping keep people safe on the road.    


“When faced with wet or slippery roads, professional drivers may choose to ‘drift’ the car through a turn, but most of us are not professional drivers,” said Jonathan Goh, TRI Research Scientist. “That’s why TRI is programming vehicles that can identify obstacles and autonomously drift around obstacles on a closed track.”


This achievement brings TRI researchers closer to understanding the full spectrum of vehicle performance. The software advances announced today calculate a whole new trajectory every twentieth of a second to balance the car gracefully as it goes around the track.

New and Improved TYPE-FV2 Blow-off Valve

 

GReddy BLOW-OFF VALVE FV2
Introducing an upgraded version with new features and new designs!!





Product Features:

GReddy BLOW OFF VALVE TYPE-FV2” inherits the floating valve structure that was popular in the previous FV model, while improving with a more sophisticated design, easier adjustment, and even more reliability.

A hand turning detent knob that adjust the preload setting of the spring does not require any tools.  It is also now possible to change the direction of  the hose union on the top cover, so it can also be adjusted 360°, also without tools, to best suit your installation. 

The mounting flange and inlet retain the same dimensions as previous GReddy blow-off valves  (TYPE-RS, RZ, and FV) so the TYPE-FV2 can easily replaced any of the older models.


 

BLOW OFF VALVE FV2
  ■ Product name:GReddy blow-off valve FV2
  ■ Part Number:11501666

Also available are application specific bolt-on kits for popular applications: R35, R32/R33/R34, ECR33, HCR32, S14/S15, JZX100, JZA80, ZN6 Turbo, GDB, GRB, CT9A, CZ4A, FD3S and more...

Specifications:
■ Prevents idling problems that can tend to occur with other blow-off valves.
The floating valve mechanism allows the valve to react quickly because there is no need to apply unnecessary excessive preload to the spring.

■ Quick response even at low boost situations. 
The floating valve mechanism prevents premature opening and closing of the valve.

■ Uses a floating valve structure (FV = " Floating Vavle")
By adopting a floating valve design, the diaphragm and valve operate independently, in this way it is possible to achieve a valve response that exceeds that of the previous models and a stable blow-off situations throughout a large boost range.


■ Uses a new rotation-adjustable top-hat.
The 360 ​° adjustable top cover eliminates the need to disassemble the top hat, to changing the orientation of the hose union.  This greatly improving usability and ease of installation, compared to previous models.   



■ Preload adjustment with detent adjustment knob. 
The easy-to-rotate detent adjustment knob makes it easy to adjust the preload with precision, given its large adjustment range (about 5 full rotations - Lock to lock) without the need for any tools.



Operation of blow-off valve FV2

■【When the throtle is open】
The dual valve spring, boost pressure from the surge tank or intake manifold, and support spring strongly press the valve to prevent relief during high supercharging.

 


■【When the throtle is closed】
The surge tank pressure becomes the maximum negative pressure, the diaphragm and dual spring are pulled up, and the valve is released. The valve pressed only by the support spring is pushed up by the residual pressure in the pipe, and the residual pressure is released instantly.


 


■【When the throtle is closed (after blow-off)】
Even if the pressure inside the surge tank remains negative and the diaphragm is pulled up, the support spring closes the valve quickly when the residual pressure is released to prepare for the next accelerator ON. This will launch the boost quickly.
