French term or phrase: cartographie
Here is the complete phrase. The cartographie is obviously the output from the various sensors in the car and determine the next operation. I hesitate to use cartography in english as that immediately conjures up map making. I have in the past used 'engine mapping', but don't really like the term.
Any suggestions most welcome.

(engine) mapping
Explanation:
http://www.proz.com/kudoz/french_to_english/automotive_cars_...

Engine mapping is a process carried out in the auto industry with the aim of modelling engine outputs as functions of engine inputs; output variables are often torque and noxious emissions, while input variables include spark, rpm, load (fuel flow rate), airfuel ratio and exhaust gas recycling ratio. The work has required some novel modelling to recognise the data collection units as spark- sweeps. The objective is to provide results of optimum spark timing for the electronic engine controller, in order to ensure optimum fuel usage subject to constraints on exhaust emissions and exhaust temperature.

Engine mapping - the setting which dictates how an engine behaves. Drivers can adjust the settings during a race, often to alter strategy

In a very basic form, some cars have a button for selecting "Economical" or "sports" driving modes. This chooses between two mapping configurations for the the engine.
