Determination of the Vehicle Body Side Slip Angle with Non-Linear Observer Strategies 2005-01-0400

In this paper the vehicle body side slip angle (VBSSA) is determined by means of non-linear state space observers. First, an adaptive non-linear double track model is presented. Validation with real measurement data shows that the model accuracy is sufficient for observer design. On basis of this model two observers are derived. One observer is based on a linearization of the vehicle model around the currently estimated state vector. The other observer adapts the dynamics of the non-linear estimation error to the one of a linear reference model. As this observer is restricted to systems of a specific structure, the adaptive non-linear double track model has to be restructured accordingly. The presented observers are validated with real measurement data. They provide an accurate estimation of the VBSSA up to the stability limit of the vehicle.
