Model-based vehicle stability control with tyre force and instantaneous cornering stiffness estimation

A model-based vehicle stability controller is proposed in this paper. Since a model-based controller highly depends on the model accuracy, the lateral forces of the tyres and the instantaneous cornering stiffnesses of the predictive vehicle model are estimated online in order to deal with the model mismatch. The model-based controller calculates a desired yaw moment according to the prevailing errors in the the yaw rate and the side-slip angles of the vehicle. Then, by using linearization, an optimal braking force allocation algorithm is proposed to allocate the yaw moments to the target slip ratios of each wheel. Simulations are carried out with a full-vehicle model in CarSim software. The effectiveness and the robustness of the proposed control algorithm are evaluated through simulation cases of open-loop and closed-loop manoeuvres.
