Model Predictive Wheel Slip Control System Using Electromechanical Brake Actuators 2007-01-0865
When presented with new technology that removes past constraints, it is often beneficial to revisit old learning's to see if they still hold, and to understand how these can be best applied to the new technology. Brake-By-Wire (BBW) systems replace all the mechanical linkages of conventional hydraulic brake systems with ‘dry’ electrical components ,. The advent of this technology poses the possibility of revisiting conventional ABS control systems by utilizing the continuous nature that BBW offers.
Presented is a BBW model based wheel slip controller using a generic continuous time Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithm . The result being the first of many steps taken in understanding the full potential that BBW systems offer.
