The Differential Braking Steering Control of Special Purpose Flat-Bed Electric Vehicle 2019-01-0440

Special purpose flat-bed vehicle is commonly utilized to move heavily items such as containers in warehouse, port and other freight handling scene, the hydraulic steering system have be gradually replaced by electric ones. However, the cost of electric steering system is high for commercial activities. Thus, for some corporates, the differential braking steering strategy becomes an ideal alternative. The purpose of this paper is to present a steering control method for flat-bed electric vehicle based on differential braking system. There are two main components of the control method, steering while moving forward and pivot steering, and each of them was composed by upper layer and executive layer. To evaluate the practicability of the control methods, a 7-DOF flat-bed vehicle model was established in Simulink. According to the simulation results at different load, velocity and steering target, the control method proposed in this paper showed quite well performance and meet the basic demand of handling quality while response rapidly to the control target.
