One-Pedal Driving is a drive mode that offers a revitalized set of driver controls that take advantage of the capability of electrified powertrains. One-Pedal Driving combines the highest available level of coast regeneration with intelligent speed trajectory control, bringing the vehicle to a complete stop without using the brake pedal. Engineers at General Motors developed One-Pedal Driving for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV on an accelerated timeline with Simulink® as a key enabler for rapid software development. Simulink provided means to predict control algorithm performance; quickly write, test, and iterate software; and generate code to integrate into controller software.
