Abstract: The electric vehicle (EV) is the most exciting object to apply "advanced motion control" technique. As an EV is driven by electric motors, it has the following three remarkable advantages: 1) motor torque generation is fast and accurate; 2) motors can be installed in two or four wheels; and 3) motor torque can be known precisely. These advantages enable us to easily realize: 1) high performance antilock braking system and traction control system with minor feedback control at each wheel; 2) chassis motion control like direct yaw control; and 3) estimation of road surface condition. "UOT Electric March II" is our novel experimental EV with four in-wheel motors. This EV is made for intensive study of advanced motion control of an EV. more

Abstract: The article begins with a review of electronic driver assisting systems such as ABS, traction control, electronic stability control, and brake assistant. We then review drive-by-wire systems with and without mechanical backup. Drive-by-wire systems consist of an operating unit with an electrical output, haptic feedback to the driver, bus systems, microcomputers, power electronics, and electrical actuators. For their design safety, integrity methods such as reliability, fault tree and hazard analysis, and risk classification are required. Different fault-tolerance principles with various forms of redundancy are considered, resulting in fail-operational, fail-silent, and fail-safe systems. Fault-detection methods are discussed for use in low-cost components, followed by a review of principles for fault-tolerant design of sensors, actuators, and communication. We evaluate these methods and principles and show how they can be applied to low-cost automotive components and drive-by-wire systems. A brake-by-wire system with electronic pedal and electric brakes is then considered in more detail, showing the design of the components and the overall architecture. Finally, we present conclusions and an outlook for further development of drive-by-wire systems. more

Abstract: A necessary condition for complex simulations of vehicle system dynamics including drive dynamics and traction control when running on adhesion limit, is an advanced creep force modelling taking large longitudinal creep into account. A method presented in the article allows to simulate various real wheel–rail contact conditions using one parameter set. The parameters can be identified from measurements or the recommended parameters for modelling of typical wheel–rail contact conditions in engineering applications can be used. Influence of vehicle speed, longitudinal, lateral and spin creep and shape of the contact ellipse is also considered. The method was validated by comparisons with measurements as presented in application examples. more

Abstract: We study methods of motion control for an electric vehicle (EV) with four independently driven in-wheel motors. First, we propose and simulate a novel robust dynamic yaw-moment control (DYC). DYC is a vehicle attitude control method that generates yaw from torque differences between the right and left wheels. The results of simulations, however, identify a problem with instability on slippery, low /spl mu/ roads. To solve this problem, a new skid detection method is proposed that will be a part of traction control system (TCS) for each drive wheel. The experimental results show that this method can detect a skidding wheel, without any information on chassis velocity. Therefore, this method will be of great help during cornering or braking in a TCS. These methods will be integrated and tested in our new experimental EV. more

Abstract: This paper describes a hybrid model and a model predictive control (MPC) strategy for solving a traction control problem. The problem is tackled in a systematic way from modeling to control synthesis and implementation. The model is described first in the Hybrid Systems Description Language to obtain a mixed-logical dynamical (MLD) hybrid model of the open-loop system. For the resulting MLD model, we design a receding horizon finite-time optimal controller. The resulting optimal controller is converted to its equivalent piecewise affine form by employing multiparametric programming techniques, and finally experimentally tested on a car prototype. Experiments show that good and robust performance is achieved in a limited development time by avoiding the design of ad hoc supervisory and logical constructs usually required by controllers developed according to standard techniques. more
