A translation of what she's all about:
In newer cars no longer has the gas pedal mechanical linkage or cable directly, but through the engine to choke elements (in gasoline engines) or the injection system (for the diesel engine). The sensor that tells the controller the gas demand of the driver is called the pedal sensor, and is usually a double potentiometer for security reasons. Occasionally, instead of potentiometers are also lower wear, but more expensive sensor principles, used, for example, with the help of Hall elements. The sensor transmits the pedal position in the form of two analog voltage to the ECU. In the case of a CAN-bus networks are digital signals should be implemented.
The traction control can be relatively easy to reduce the engine power.
The SPEED-BUSTER GP1 series optimizes the signal of the electronic gas pedal, making the engine control unit is caused to another control function. By means of this optimization is a better and more sporty response of the vehicle and noticed the fuel consumption may fall by up to 15%. The lower consumption depends on the driving behavior from the individual persons, since now the car reaches the desired speed is faster, fuel savings.
