Stability Assist System for a Two-Motor-Drive Electric Vehicle using Fuzzy Logic 2003-01-1285
This paper presents a novel method for motion control and driver stability assist system of an electric vehicle with independently driven wheels. A combination of two controllers for yaw rate and wheel slip is used to improve yaw stability of a two-wheel-drive electric vehicle. Vehicle speed is estimated using a multi-sensor data fusion method. To overcome the uncertainties in tire-road friction, a Fuzzy logic approach is employed for both controllers. The effectiveness of the proposed control method is evaluated by simulation.
