An Active Suspension Control Strategy for Planet Rover on Rough Terrain 2024-01-2300

The soft and rough terrain on the planet's surface significantly affects the ride and safety of rovers during high-speed driving, which imposes high requirements for the control of the suspension system of planet rovers. To ensure good ride comfort of the planet rover during operation in the low-gravity environment of the planet's surface, this study develops an active suspension control strategy for torsion spring and torsional damper suspension systems for planet rovers. Firstly, an equivalent dynamic model of the suspension system is derived. Based on fractal principles, a road model of planetary surface is established. Then, a fuzzy-PID based control strategy aimed at improving ride comfort for the planet rover suspension is established and validated on both flat and rough terrains. This study provides an advanced suspension system control strategy for planet rovers' ride comfort and safety during high-speed driving, ensuring the smooth operation of vehicles on the rough extraterrestrial terrain.
