An adaptive, sliding control algorithm is developed for automated throttle control of an I.C. engine to be used in drive-by-wire applications such as coordinated engine/transmission gear shiftings, traction control and autonomous vehicle control (IVHS). The paper presents a new sliding control formulation that includes combustion transport delays and a simplified adapation law to account for slowly varying engine parameters. The new technique is evaluated by computer simulation and laboratory dynamometer tests.
