NOTE
-
In this group:

- the means ordinarily includes a device, e.g. a servomechanism,
for operating a velocity-affecting element of the vehicle,
e.g. the throttle;
- a means for preventing a vehicle from exceeding a particular
speed is often referred to as a "governor", whereas a means
for maintaining the vehicle within a relatively narrow speed
range is generally designated as "speed control". Since these
two functions are frequently interrelated, no attempt has been
made to identify such means as being particularly adapted to
perform only one, or the other of the functions.

NOTE
-
The control of a single sub-unit is classified in the relevant class for the sub-unit. Where a single sub-unit is controlled by means of signals or commands from other sub-units the control of this single sub-unit is classified in the relevant class for this sub-unit. For instance, the control of variable-ratio gearing by means of signals from the engine or
{
from another sub-unit influenced by
}
the accelerator is classified in subclass F16H

Conjoint control of drive units, e.g. propulsion units, and variable-ratio gearing occuring only transiently during ratio shift and being also characterised by the control of the gearing is classified in subclass F16H

WARNING
-
This group and its subgroups are no longer used for the classification of new documents as from January 1st, 2006. The backlog of thse groups is being continuosly reclassified to the relevant groups of B60W.
