Virtual Prototype Co-Simulation of 4WS Vehicle
A new 4WS vehicle model is set up by means of revamping a foreign FWS model. Co-simulation is completed by loading 4WS mechanical model as a subsystem which is built to express the characteristics of physical model of vehicle in ADAMS/Car into the control system modeled in MATLAB. Moreover, the response curves of evaluating handling stability are obtained according to co-simulation results of step steering maneuvers and single lane change maneuvers. It provides theoretical basis for developing 4WS physical vehicle rapidly.
