Modeling of Active Differential Dynamics

Automotive Control Group

Modern vehicles include more and more control devices in order to increase the overall vehicle performance. Implementation of different power train control systems is aimed at improvement of drivability, emissions, and fuel economy. On the other hand, the application of interactive vehicle dynamics controls can significantly improve the vehicle safety, and increase the ride comfort and handling performance. Using optimal, adaptive, and predictive control strategies leads to increased energy efficiency of different types of electric vehicles and electric vehicle fleet charging systems. Finally, application of advanced artificial intelligence methods facilitates development of driver-assistance systems and future autonomous vehicles. The existence of faithful mathematical dynamic models of automotive component...
