A Coordination Approach for DYC and Active Front Steering
Integrating chassis control systems can lead to improvements in the safety, efficiency of action and overall production of a modern car. The sharing of information between chassis sub-systems allows the controller to take the optimum course of action since it has more than one option to affect the dynamics of a vehicle. This paper investigates the principle of coordination of chassis subsystems by selecting active steering and yaw stability control. A controller that coordinates the action of active front steering(AFS) and direct yaw moment control(DYC) is proposed. Preliminary results for the coordinated controller using limit handling tests suggest that such an integrated approach can lead to overall improvements in vehicle dynamic response.
