Control of Handling Stability in Four-Wheel Steering Vehicles Based on Individual Channel Design
This paper presents a new steering control structure for vehicles equipped with four-wheel steering system. A linear model of the lateral dynamics is used in this paper. This control structure is based on a simplified linear model of the lateral dynamics of such vehicles and aims to decouple the control of sideslip from the control of yaw rate. The control design is based on a linear multivariable plant and the front and rear steering angles, According to the Individual Channel Design paradigm. The proposed control structure has been applied to design sideslip and yaw rate controllers using a more accurate model of the lateral dynamics of four-wheel steering vehicles. Simulations are used to illustrate the performance and robustness of the designed controllers.
