Abstract

The paper proposes a robust control design for the integration of steering and torque vectoring using a variable-geometry suspension system. Torque vectoring control is based on independent steering/driving wheel systems, which is an actual challenge in the field of electric vehicles. Simultaneously, the steering angle is generated by the variable-geometry suspension system by changing the camber angle and the position of the wheel-road contact independently at each wheel at the front. The integration of torque vectoring and wheel tilting control is in the focus of the paper. The modeling of the lateral and the steering dynamics of the vehicle leads to interconnection models. A hierarchical structure of both the modeling and the control design is formed. The control design itself is based on the Linear Parameter-Varying (LPV) method. The robustness of the control system can be achieved by estimating and considering the uncertainties in the different layers of the hierarchical structure. In the LPV-based control design the reconfiguration strategy is also applied.
