A Constant Radius Constant Speed Simulation Methodology-Yaw Rate Control 2011-01-0738
A simulation methodology is developed for the Constant Radius Constant Speed (CRCS) analysis to predict the ISO4138  road test performance. The CRCS analysis can be used to predict the vehicle steady-state handling characteristics such as understeer, rear cornering compliance, and roll gradient, etc. The Yaw-Rate Control methodology is applied to replace the traditional driver-in-the-loop path-following approaches. Comparing to the path-following approaches, the proposed method is simpler to use, more efficient, accurate, and robust.
