Allocation Control of the Distributed Steering System 2016-01-8034

Distributed steering vehicle uses four steering motors to achieve four wheel independent steering. The steering angle of each wheel can be distributed respectively. The tire cornering characteristics are added to traditional steering model to study the angle allocation control algorithm. Using the constraint relation between tire slip angle, vehicle speed, yaw rate and front steering angle, and connecting with the ideal ackermann steering relationship, steering angle allocation of front wheel independent steering and four wheel independent steering is derived. Then simulated analysis is carried out to demonstrate the efficiency of the algorithm. Improvements in tire wear condition are determined by evaluating the optimization in tire lateral force, and the vehicle stability is determined by vehicle slip angle. The simulation results show that the angle allocation control algorithm has a good effect on improving tire wear condition and enhancing the stability of vehicle.
