Abstract

This paper is concerned with an integrated vehicle dynamic control using different kind of actuators. The new and very interesting trends in vehicle dynamic control are to synthesize multivariable controllers using LPV/H∞ framework, see [1]. A new strategy for global chassis control is proposed using a smart coordination between the front/rear active steering actuators and four active suspension ones in order to improve vehicle handling and ride performances. This control is achieved in the LPV/H∞ robust control framework, which allows activating appropriately the steering controllers and performs suitable combination with the suspension control depending on some varying parameters. Simulations on a full non-linear vehicle model, subject to dangerous driving situation, reveals the satisfactory improvements on the vehicle handling performance, stability and robustness of the proposed LPV/H∞ control strategy.
