Recently we have received e-mails asking us how it is that our Spiider/Spiider Plus DCCD Controllers do not have maps like OEM system and how the system could then operate.
Let’s first look at how a map based system works and then I will explain how our system is so different.
Maps are basically look-up tables or charts stored in a memory. A map based controller fetches a number in this chart or table every time one of the parameters changes. The result of a certain input will always be one number or outcome. The table is static so it would not recognize how you reached that point of operation and if the conditions of the road change, it will not change the outcome unless you change the entire map.
An adaptive algorithm based system, on the other hand, does not have any maps. Rather, it looks at each case based on the inputs and also how it has arrived at that point and directly calculates the proper outcome fast enough to reach the optimum performance for every situation no matter the road conditions. This technology allows the system to intelligently search for the best result instead of just arriving at the same outcome over and over again regardless of how wrong it might be.
We always highlight the following example of why map-based systems are not efficient and practical. Imagine you are driving on one mile stretch of a road at 60 miles per hour and the road conditions change from dry to wet (possibly mud,gravel ,..) and back and meanwhile you also hit a turn. Do you think that, even if you assessed the road conditions accurately, you will have time to switch the maps in time while you are driving through a turn? How much time has it taken you to reach the system and push the buttons?
In comparison, the algorithms in Spiider family of DCCD controllers have found the optimum point of operation by examining the operational solutions hundreds of times per second and applying them to your DCCD transmission for a true hands-off experience.
Our production line is running smoothly (with precautions we are taking). We maintain a good stock level and ready to serve you as soon as your order is in. Our average ship time currently is one business day. Complex orders might take up to two business days. We are using UPS for most destinations and the shipments are generally on time with no major slow down to report.
We are also ready to provide sales and technical support by phone or email. Please send us any question you might have.
Here is a nice email we received from Recce Rally Team that makes us proud of the most advanced adaptive technology we provide:
“The car is still running your DCCD controller (referring to Spiider controller), and traction seems to be improving after each test. I am still very satisfied with the product. The algorithms seems to take nicely to the new faster average speed of the car, too.”
It has been certainly a challenging year for all of us around the globe but we hope not to lose sight of our blessings and are hopeful that next year will bring better days with joy, happiness and health to all of us.
Thank you again for your support and interest in our products. We will be in shutdown until Jan 4th. All order received after Dec 23rd will be processed in order received on and after Jan 4th so if you do send us an order please be patient as we will do our best to ship your order as soon as possible.
Great news! Amanda Skelly Comes second in 2018 Eastern RallySprint Series (2nd Overall Driver and 2nd in AWD catagory)! We are proud to be a small part of this success with our Spiider Plus DCCD Controller.
With Rally Colorado behind us, we are back and preparing for the next rally. Driver Adam Short and co-driver Danny Norkus put down some impressive stage times including a 50 sec lead in 1st overall by the end of day one. Read more at https://www.facebook.com/dccdpro/
