Vehicle Dynamics Control for Tractor Semitrailer Lateral Stability

Abstract:

Article Preview

Rollover and jack-knifing of tractor semitrailer on high speed obstacle avoidance under emergency are serious threats for motorists. A tractor semitrailer model was built with multi-rigid-body method in this paper. The steering performance of tractor semitrailer has been analyzed, as well as the stability control theory, including yaw rate following, anti-rollover. The dynamics simulation for yaw rate following and anti-rollover has been performed on the dynamic tractor semitrailer. The results show that the vehicle dynamics control proposed in this paper can stabilize the tractor semitrailer, rollover and jack-knifing are prevented and the tractor semitrailer more accurately follows the driver's desired path.
