Owing to the recent developments in sensors with reduced size and weight, it is now possible to install sensors on a body of a motorcycle to monitor its behavior during running. The analysis of maneuverability and stability has been performed based on the data resulted from measurements by these sensors. The tire forces and moments is an important measurement item in maneuverability and stability studies. However, the tire forces and moments is difficult to measure directly, therefore, it is a common practice to measure the force and the moment acting on the center of the wheel. The measuring device is called a wheel forces and moments sensor, and it is widely used for cars. The development of a wheel forces and moments sensor for motorcycles has difficulty particular to motorcycles. First, motorcycles run with their bodies largely banked, which restricts positioning the sensors.

In recent years three-wheel camber vehicles, with two wheels in the front and a single rear wheel, have been growing in popularity due to their excellent stability and motorcycle-like handling. We call this kind of vehicle a “Leaning Multi Wheel category” vehicle (hereinafter referred to as a “LMW vehicle”) and have been pursuing research and development of these vehicles. A LMW vehicle has various characteristics, but one of them stands out in particular. When a LMW vehicle is cornering, if one of the front wheels passes over a section of road surface with a low friction coefficient, there is very little disturbance to the vehicle’s behavior, it remains stable, and can continue to be driven as normal. However, there has been no investigation into why these vehicles have this particular characteristic and so there is a need to clarify this phenomenon theoretically from the standpoint of understanding these vehicles better.

Tires influence the dynamic performance of the motorcycle and the development of tires to meet these requirements has always been one of the critical and challenging tasks for the motorcycle industry. The tire characteristics and rest of the motorcycle design need to be tuned extensively to achieve the desired performance and this work requires estimating tire force characteristics upfront. The aim of this study is to develop feasible test methods to measure the lateral force characteristics of motorcycle tires. This work is an extension of our previous work on estimating the longitudinal forces of motorcycle tires. In this work, new experimental procedures are developed to estimate the friction ellipse and lateral stiffness characteristics of motorcycle tires. A fairly accurate tire model is developed using the measured lateral force characteristics.

In applying ISO 26262 to motorcycles, C class evaluation by expert riders is considered an appropriate technique. Expert riders have evaluated commercial product development for years and can appropriately conduct vehicle tests in terms of safety restrictions (avoid the risk of falling). Moreover, expert riders can ride safely and evaluate the motorcycle performance stably even if the test condition is close to the performance limit of the vehicle. This study aims to construct a motorcycle C class classification method by an expert rider’s subjective evaluation. First, we confirmed the possibility that expert riders can evaluate C class. The riding maneuvers of expert and ordinary riders on the test were compared, assuming normal running. The comparison result demonstrated that expert riders could evaluate C class from an ordinary rider’s perspective. Next, we considered a test procedure that used an evaluation sheet as the C class evaluation technique for an actual hazardous event.

The design of a car or truck always involves a conflict of goals. The suspension system that is optimized for ride is not always the best for handling. The powertrain that gives best acceleration is not likely to be the most fuel-efficient. Through this course, you will develop an understanding of the motor vehicle as a system.

This paper focuses on the modeling process of incorporating inflation pressure into the UniTire tire model for pure cornering. Via observing and manipulating the tire experimental data, the effects of inflation pressure on the tire cornering property are analyzed in detail, including the impacts on cornering stiffness, the peak friction coefficient, the curvature of transition region and the pneumatic trail. And the brief mechanism explanations are also given for some of those impacts. The results show that some effects of inflation pressure are similar to that of vertical load on the non-dimensional tire cornering property, and also have strong interactive effects between the two operating conditions. Therefore, in order to obtain concise expressions, the inflation pressure is incorporated into the UniTire tire model by analogy with the expressions for vertical load, and the interactive effects are also taken into account.

The tire mechanics characteristics are essential for analysis and control of vehicle dynamics. Basically, the effects of sideslip, longitudinal slip, camber angle and vertical load are able to be represented accurately by current existing tire models. However, the research of velocity effects for tire forces and moments are still insufficient. Some experiments have demonstrated that the tire properties actually vary with the traveling velocity especially when the force and moment are nearly saturated. This paper develops an enhanced brush tire model and the UniTire semi-physical model for tire forces and moments under different traveling velocities for raising need of advanced tire model. The primary effects of velocity on tire performances are the rubber friction distribution characteristics at the tire-road interface.

This paper primarily studies the effect of roundabout cross-sectional geometry and different semi-truck pneumatic suspension systems on roll stability in roundabouts, which have become more and more popular in urban settings. Roundabouts are commonly designed in their size and form to accommodate articulated heavy vehicles (AHVs) by evaluating such affects as offtracking. However, the effect of the roadway geometry in roundabout, along with their entry and exit configuration, on the roll dynamics of semi-tractors and trailers are often ignored, mostly because they far removed from the immediate issues commonly considered by civil engineers during roadway design. The cross-sectional geometry of circulatory roadway and truck apron, two key roundabout segments, are studied to evaluate the effect on roll stability of a WB-67 semi-truck in roundabouts, when the truck is equipped with conventional OE suspensions and a balanced pneumatic system.

The purpose of this paper is to propose a pantograph bounce suppression method for trolley-assisted mining dump trucks. Pantograph bounce is a phenomenon to lose contact with the overhead lines. Electrical components installed in dump truck may be damaged by arcing when pantograph bounce occurs. Road maintenance in the conventional method reduces roughness to prevent pantograph bounce; however, pantograph bounce recurs in a few days after the maintenance. Therefore, it is important to prevent pantograph bounce even if road maintenance is not in time. The proposed suppression method consists of two key functions: predicting pantograph bounce and preventing the front end of vehicle from sinking, based on the prediction. The pantograph bounce prediction function uses pitching movement frequency to calculate how much the front end of the vehicle will sink. First, it detects the beginning of the front end descent. Then, it calculates the vehicle’s state after several hundred milliseconds.

In this paper, we proposed a method of dynamic simulation and analysis based on superelement modeling to increase the efficiency of dynamic simulation for vehicle body structure. Using this method, a certain MPV body structure was divided into several subsystems, and the modal parameters and frequency response functions of which were obtained through superelement condensation, residual structure solution, and superelement data restoration. The study shows that compared to the traditional modeling method, the computational time for vehicle body modal analysis can be reduced by 6.9% without reducing accuracy; for the purpose of structural optimization, the computational time can be reduced by 87.7% for frequency response analyses of optimizations; consistency between simulation and testing can be achieved on peak frequency points and general trends for the vibration frequency responses of interior front row floors under accelerating conditions.

The prediction in the design phase of the stability of ground vehicles subject to transient crosswinds become of increased concern with drag reduced shapes, platooning as well as lighter vehicles. The objective of this work is to assess the order of model complexity needed in numerical simulations to capture the behavior of a ground vehicle going through a transient crosswind. The performance of a full-dynamic coupling between aerodynamic and vehicle dynamic simulations, including a driver model, is evaluated. In the simulations a feedback from the vehicle dynamics into the aerodynamic simulation are performed in every time step. In the work, both the vehicle dynamics response and the aerodynamics forces and moments are studied. The results are compared to a static coupling approach on a set of different vehicle geometries.. One simplified bus geometry and five car-type geometries are evaluated.

Tire modeling plays an important role in the development of an Active Vehicle Safety System. As part of a larger project that aims at developing an integrated chassis control system, this study investigates the performance of a 19” all-season tire on ice for a sport utility vehicle . A design of experiment has been formulated to quantify the effect of operational parameters, specifically: wheel slip, normal load, and inflation pressure on the tire tractive performance. The experimental work was conducted on the Terramechanics Rig in the Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Laboratory at Virginia Tech. The tire performance data collected has then been used to parameterize a Dugoff Tire Model. Compared to existing solutions, this model is attractive in terms of its simplicity, low number of parameters and easy implementation for real-time applications. The curves correlating tire forces and slip ratio were identified by applying zero-phase filtering techniques to the raw test data.

As we move towards the world of autonomous vehicles it becomes increasingly important to integrate several chassis control systems to provide the desired vehicle stability without mutual interference. The principles for integration proposed in existing technical literature are majorly centralized which are not only computationally expensive but does not fit the current supplier based OEM business model. An Automotive OEM brings multiple suppliers on-board for developing the Active Safety systems considering several factors such as cost, quality, time, ease of business etc. When these systems are put together in the vehicle they may interfere with each other’s function. Decoupling their function results in heavy calibration causing performance trade-offs and loss in development time.

In this study, we devised the steering assistance control that feedback of the external information from the laser sensor. We have created the emergency avoidance assistance control program by the obstacle detection in the first one, and the cornering assistance control program by the white line detection to second. Improvement in safety by these driving support can be expected. The effect of the created program was to understand by the driving simulator. In addition, we understand the synergistic effect of these steering assist program and chassis control (camber angle control, derivative steering assistance control). In the emergency avoidance assist by the obstacle detection, it made it possible to also be avoided for adding the handle operation at an early stage by the steering assistance in situations where manual operation collide by too late an obstacle avoidance handle operation.
