Simulation for Vehicle Handling Performance Based on the Cybernetic Model of “Driver-Vehicle-Road” Closed-Loop System
In this paper, a cybernetic model of “driver-vehicle-road” closed-loop system including a driver model and a steering system model is built under the MATLAB/Simulink environment. Then, the influence of different dynamic characteristics of steering system on vehicle handling and stability is studied. The results suggest that the “driver-vehicle” model built has a high tracking precision in following the path; Increasing the rigidity of steering system or decreasing the dilatory distance of front tire can enhance the tracking precision and can minish the driving burden and the fatalness of side-tip, the total evaluation result of vehicle performance will be optimized as well.
