IVMC: Intelligent Vehicle Motion Control 2002-01-0821
The development of Integrated Chassis controllers has followed two main approaches. The pragmatic approach is to integrate existing chassis subsystems (e.g. DYC, ABS, TCS, ARC) with heuristic control laws. The more theoretical approach is to calculate control actions by solving a model of the vehicle dynamics. There is a dearth of literature that investigates the interface between these two strategies. This interface can give vehicle manufacturers ownership of the core vehicle motion control algorithm and allow them to select chassis controllers from a range of component suppliers. IVMC aims to give a global design methodology for Intelligent Vehicle Motion Control that interfaces a theoretical, generic controller with existing chassis subsystems. The interface takes the generic actuation forces and distributes them to the braking and steering chassis subsystems, DYC and active steering.
