Optimization of driver actions in RWD race car including tyre thermodynamics

Paper presents an innovative method for an improvement of racer actions by multi-criteria optimization with genetic algorithms of “miMa” simulation model of driver-vehicle system with 30 generalized coordinates, with focus on tyres thermal effects. Numerical example considers BMW E36 Coupe (RWD) prepared for a track racing. The optimization decision variables include 16 parameters responsible for the driver actions (brake, accelerator and steering wheel) on a selected track part. In order to improve this section lap time and exit velocity different driving strategies are found by using optimization, depending on modelled temperature states (constant, cold initially and hot) of the tyres tread.
