ABSTRACTProduction-type G-Vectoring Control vehicles are now being put on the market. Customers and reviewers have praised the handling quality and course traceability of these vehicles. This paper clarifies the mechanism behind this improvement in handling quality using a simple bicycle model and driver model analysis. It focuses on the residual yaw angular acceleration when the steering speed is zero and shows that GVC reduces its value. This result provides evidence for improved handling qual...

Feed-forward types of tyre force distribution controls with some norms for motion controls of a full drive-by-wire electric vehicle are presented. One of the norms for the distribution control introduced is minimising tyre workload and another one is minimising tyre dissipation energy due to tyre slip during vehicle motion. The effects of the distribution controls are substantiated using an experimental vehicle on a proving ground. Especially the effects of the tyre force distribution norms on i...

Steering torque effects on vehicle handling quality is investigated by a driver model based evaluation method. A driving simulator with a precise steering torque generating device is used for this experimental study. It is found the steering reactive torque to steering angle composed of spring, damping and spring-friction is effective on good handling quality.

We extracted a trade-off strategy between longitudinal traction/braking force and cornering force by using jerk information through observing an expert driver's voluntary braking and turning action. Using the expert driver's strategy, we developed a new control concept, called 'G-Vectoring control', which is an automatic longitudinal acceleration control (No DYC) in accordance with the vehicle's lateral jerk caused by the driver's steering manoeuvres. With the control, the direction of synthetic...

Publisher Summary This chapter deals with the mechanism for generating the force produced by the relative motion of the wheel to the ground, and explanation of its characteristics. The contact between the vehicle and the ground is at the wheels. If the wheel possesses a velocity component perpendicular to its rotation plane, it will receive a force perpendicular to its traveling direction. In other words, the wheel force that makes the vehicle motion possible is produced by the relative motion o...
