Seyed Hossein TamaddoniPhD Studenttamadoni@vt.eduSaied TaheriAssociate Professorstaheri@vt.eduCenter for Vehicle Systems and Safety (CVeSS)Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State UniversityBlacksburg, VA USAABSTRACT
A new control algorithm and the adaptation laws requiredfor estimation of unknown vehicle parameters have beendeveloped for vehicle stability control (VSC). This algorithm isbased on the Lyapunov Direct Method. A vehicle model withtwo degrees of freedom (DOF) was used to develop the controlalgorithm. In developing the equations of motion for this simplemodel, a new approach for introducing the needed stabilizingforces and moments was developed. In addition, an eight DOFmodel was developed for control algorithm evaluation. Themodel includes lateral, longitudinal, yaw, and roll motions of the body plus the rotational DOFs for all of the four wheels.Also included in the model is a transient tire model taking intoaccount the tire lateral relaxation length. Using the validated 8DOF simulation model, the new control algorithm wasevaluated and the results show the advantages of using such anapproach for enhancing vehicle stability during emergencysteering maneuvers.
Despite the fact that the United States has one of the bestroadway systems in the world, congestion is increasing andsafety remains a serious problem. Congestion takes its toll inlost productivity, costing the nation an estimated $40 billioneach year. Trucks and buses travel over 100 billion milesannually and face the same congestion, delays, and inherent lostproductivity experienced by the daily commuter. Vehiclecrashes represent another $150 billion in financial burden to theeconomy, and result in the loss of more than 40,000 livesannually in the United States [1].In recent years, electronic control systems have found theirway into automotive applications, resulting in significantimprovements in vehicle active safety. The active vehiclecontrol systems aim to improve the vehicle stability byintervening when the vehicle is at the physical limit of itsperformance. They assist the driver to keep control of thevehicle and at the same time provide the needed flexibility forthe vehicle to adapt to road variations. Various types of activecontrol systems have been developed in the past to enhance thestability and handling characteristics of the vehicle [2
7].Active front steering (AFS), active rear steering, four-wheelsteering (4WS), active suspension, and vehicle stability control(VSC) are some of the options widely explored. Electroniccontrol of vehicle dynamics has seen considerable effort in theintegration of individual active control systems.It has been known that vehicle stability(understeer/oversteer) is influenced by tire normal loadvariations during cornering [8]. This behavior can becompensated for by use of active or semi-active suspensionwhere the normal load variation on a tire can be controlled.The adaptive control algorithm developed here is based onthe Lyapunov Direct Method. A simple 2 DOF model has beenused to develop the control algorithm. This methodology couldbe extended to higher order systems of vehicle equations of motion, linear or nonlinear.To evaluate the control strategy developed here, a nonlinear8 DOF vehicle model along with the Magic Formula tire model

This is due to the fact that the control commands areexecuted through utilization of anti-lock braking system.Therefore, longitudinal vehicle motion and wheel dynamics hadto be modeled and included in the simulation program. Theeight degrees of freedom considered are body lateral,longitudinal, roll and yaw, and rotational motion of each wheel.

The equations of motion for vehicle model of Figure 1 arederived in this section. Eight degrees of freedom are consideredfor this model (longitudinal, lateral, yaw, and roll motion of thevehicle center of gravity, and angular velocity of each wheel).The number of degrees of freedom and the resulting set of equations of motion are chosen to be applicable for furtherstudy of the probable extensions of the proposed control
algorithm. Using Lagrange’s equations, the resultant equations
of motion are as follows:

Since vehicle stability is considered to be a transient event,a first order lateral force transient tire model is used. Equation(3) defines the tire side slip angle differential equations.

Using the equations of motion shown in the previoussection, a simulation model was developed in MATLAB©.Figure 2 shows the simulation results plotted alongside theavailable objective measurement data [10]. As can be seen fromthe yaw rate graph, the simulation results follow those of theexperimental results well.This simulation model is used for evaluation of the controlalgorithm that will be discussed later in this paper.
The method used in the paper requires the equations of motion for the dynamic system under consideration to be of theform:
