Smith, E.N., Velenis, E., Cao, D. and Tavernini, Davide (2016) Evaluation of optimal yaw rate reference for electric vehicle torque vectoring In: 13th International Symposium on Advanced Vehicle Control (AVEC'16), 13-16 Sep 2016, Munich, Germany.

This work evaluates the intrinsic contribution of the yaw rate reference to the overall handling performance of an electric vehicle with torque vectoring control - in terms of minimum-time manoeuvring. A range of yaw rate references are compared through optimal control simulations incorporating closed-loop controller dynamics. Results show yaw rate reference has a significant effect on manoeuvre time.

Additional Information : The AVEC symposium is a leading international conference in the fields of vehicle dynamics and advanced vehicle control, bringing together scientists and engineers from academia and automotive industry. The first symposium was held in 1992 in Yokohama, Japan. Since then, biennial AVEC symposia have been established internationally and have considerably contributed to the progress of technology in automotive research and development. In 2016 the 13th International Symposium on Advanced Vehicle Control (AVEC’16) was held in Munich, Germany, from 13th to 16th of September 2016. The symposium was hosted by the Munich University of Applied Sciences. AVEC’16 puts a special focus on automatic driving, autonomous driving functions and driver assist systems, integrated control of interacting control systems, controlled suspension systems, active wheel torque distribution, and vehicle state and parameter estimation. 132 papers were presented at the symposium and are published in these proceedings as full paper contributions. The papers review the latest research developments and practical applications in highly relevant areas of vehicle control, and may serve as a reference for researchers and engineers.
