4 Review of Vehicle Dynamics

Design of control systems for ground vehicles must start from an adequate understanding of their dynamic behavior. Although a detailed discussion of vehicle dynamics is beyond the scope of this chapter, simple dynamic models suitable for controller design are necessary for control studies and are developed and presented herein. These simple models are used in subsequent chapters as the basis for controller designs (e.g., cruise control, antilock brakes, traction control, steering control, and active suspensions). More complex (i.e., nonlinear, high-order, and fully coupled) models for vehicle dynamics often are needed to evaluate, using simulation studies, the controllers that are designed using simple control-design ...
