A New Fuzzy Based Stability Index Using Predictive Vehicle Modeling and GPS Data 2008-01-2597

The use of global positioning systems, or GPS, as a means of logistical organization for fleet vehicles has become more widespread in recent years. The system has the ability to track vehicle location, report on diagnostic trouble codes, and keep tabs on maintenance schedules thus helping to improve the safety and productivity of the vehicles and their operators. In addition, the increasing use and implementation of yaw and roll stability control in heavy trucks has contributed to an increased level of safety for truck drivers and other motorists. However, these systems require the vehicle to begin a yaw or roll event before they assist in maintaining control. The aim of this paper is to present a new method for utilizing the GPS signal in conjunction with the fuzzy based stability index to create a truly active safety system.
