Abstract

The paper presents the modelling and control design of an independent steering system which is based on the variable-geometry suspension. Through the actuation of the suspension the camber angle of the wheel is modified, which results in the variation of the steering wheel scrub radius. In the paper the model of the independent steering mechanism and the relationship between the steering and the suspension geometry are formulated. Furthermore, the model is validated through a high-fidelity multi-body suspension model Matlab/SimMechanics. In the paper the steps of the robust control design are presented, and the efficiency of the system is illustrated through different vehicle dynamical scenarios.
