Phenomenological analysis of hydroplaning through intelligent tyres

Hydroplaning, as well known, greatly affects safety since it leads to the loss of contact between the tyre and the road, preventing the vehicle from responding to control inputs such as steering, braking and acceleration. Sensorised tyres developed in recent years have proved to be able to detect hydroplaning risks in terms of proximity to the so-called hydroplaning speed. The availability of such devices can push towards the development of control systems that are able to preserve vehicle stability and directionality also close to hydroplaning onset. This paper presents results relevant to the identification of hydroplaning proximity through smart tyres and describes an experimental campaign focused on the identification of the lateral response of tyres while approaching the hydroplaning speed.
