Non-linear characteristic of tire forces is the main cause of vehicle lateral dynamics instability, while direct yaw moment control is an effective method to recover the vehicle stability. In this paper, an optimal linear quadratic regulator (LQR) controller for roll-yaw dynamics to articulated heavy vehicles is developed. For this purpose, the equations of motion obtained by the MATLAB software are coded and then a control law is introduced by minimizing the local differences between the predicted and the desired responses. The influence of some parameters such as the anti roll bar, change the parameters of the suspension system and track wide in articulated heavy vehicles stability has been studied. The simulation results show that the vehicle stability can be remarkably improved when the optimal linear controller is applied

In this study, stability control of a three-wheeled vehicle with two wheels on the front axle, a three-wheeled vehicle with two wheels on the rear axle, and a standard four-wheeled vehicle are compared. For vehicle dynamics control systems, the direct yaw moment control is considered as a suitable way of controlling the lateral motion of a vehicle during a severe driving maneuver. In accordance to the present available technology, the performance of vehicle dynamics control actuation systems is based on the individual control of each wheel braking force known as the differential braking. Also, in order to design the vehicle dynamics control system the linear optimal control theory is used. Then, to investigate the effectiveness of the proposed linear optimal control system, computer simulations are carried out by using nonlinear twelvedegree- of-freedom models for three-wheeled cars and a fourteen-degree-of-freedom model for a fourwheeled car. Simulation results of lane change and J-turn maneuvers are shown with and without control system. It is shown that for lateral stability, the three wheeled vehicle with single front wheel is more stable than the four wheeled vehicle, which is in turn more stable than the three wheeled vehicle with single rear wheel. Considering turning radius which is a kinematic property shows that the front single three-wheeled car is more under steer than the other cars.

Direct Yaw moment Control systems (DYC) can maintain the vehicle in the driver’s desired path by distributing the asymmetric longitudinal forces and the generation of the Control Yaw Moment (CYM). In order to achieve the superior control performance, intelligent usage of lateral forces is also required. The lateral wheel forces have an indirect effect on the CYM and based upon their directions, increase or decrease the amount of CYM magnitude. In this paper, a systematic and applicable algorithm is proposed to use the lateral force in the process of Yaw controlling optimally. The control systems are designed based on the proposed algorithm. This system includes Yaw rate controller and wheel slip controllers which are installed separately for each wheel. Both of the mentioned control systems are designed on the basis of the Fuzzy logic. Finally, the capabilities of the proposed control systems are evaluated in a four wheel drive vehicle, for which, the traction of each wheel can be controlled individually. It is shown that considering the lateral force effect offers significant improvement of the desired yaw rate tracking

In this article, vehicle cornering stability and brake stabilization via bifurcation analysis has been investigated. In order to extract the governing equations of motion, a nonlinear four-wheeled vehicle model with two degrees of freedom has been developed. Using the continuation software package MatCont a stability analysis based on phase plane analysis and bifurcation of equilibrium is performed and an optimal controller has been proposed. Finally, simulation has been done in Matlab-Simulink software considering a sine with dwell steering angle input, and the effectiveness of the proposed controller on the aforementioned model has been validated with Carsim model.

The electronic stability control (ESC) system is one of the most important active safety systems in vehicles. Here, we intend to improve the Electronic stability of four in-wheel motor drive electric vehicles. We will design an electronic stability control system based on Type-2 fuzzy logic controller. Since, Type-2 fuzzy controller has uncertainty in input interval furthermore of output fuzziness, it behaves like a robust control, hence it is suitable for control of nonlinear uncertain systems which uncertainty may be due to parameter variation or un-modeled dynamics. The controller output for stabilization of vehicle is corrective yaw moment. Controller output is the torque that distribute by braking and acceleration on both sides of the vehicle. We simulate our designs on MATLAB software. Some drive maneuvers will be carry to validate system performance in vehicle stability maintenance. Simulation results indicate that distributed torque-brake control strategy based on Type-2 fuzzy logic controller can improve the stability and maneuverability of vehicle, significantly in comparison with uncontrolled vehicle and Type-1 fuzzy ESC. Furthermore, we compare the conventional braking ESC with our designed ESC, i.e. distributed exertion of torque ESC and braking ESC in view point of both stabilization and performance. As we will see, proposed ESC can decrease vehicle speed reduction, in addition to better vehicle stability maintenance.
