Improvement of Vehicle Lateral Dynamics by Active Front Steering Control 2004-01-2081

In this work, the active front steering control is studied using linear three degrees of freedom handling model incorporating the driver’s operation model and vehicle suspension derivatives. The active steering control strategy is based on the optimal control theory. In this design, the active front steering angle is determined based on minimizing all model state variables and full state feedback gains. The results are generated when the model is excited by random wind excitation, which was modeled as quasi-static approach with statistical properties taken from previous work, and presented in frequency domain as power spectral density as well as root mean square values in tables. Significant improvements are achieved for the vehicle handling characteristics using active front steering control in comparison with active four wheel steering and conventional two wheel steering.
