This paper deals with improving comfort and handling for a ground vehicle through the coordinated control of different active systems available in passenger cars, e.g., electronic stability control, active roll control and engine torque control.
The authors first describe separate control systems, each with its logic, showing advantages and limits, then propose various possible integrations, aiming at exploiting the benefits of a coordinated approach.
Finally, the proposed control logics are tested on a vehicle model: simulation results prove the effectiveness of the approach in improving vehicle response during typical handling maneuvers.
