Design of Front Wheel Active Steering for Improved Vehicle Handling and Stability 2000-01-1619

Active steering has received lot of attention in the recent years because of the development of vehicle stability control systems and intelligent vehicle highway systems. Active steering systems allow for correction of the steer angle to achieve the desired vehicle yaw gain. The proposed system can be easily integrated with the vehicle stability control systems that use braking to control the vehicle yaw gain. The paper describes the concept of front wheel active steering system and the design techniques involved in order to achieve the desired performance from the system. The design techniques demonstrated in the paper do not address noise (gear rattles, motor noise, gear whine etc), electromagnetic compatibility and thermal issues related to DC motor and digital controller.
