Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Vehicle dynamics and control is the study of the motion and behavior of vehicles and the methods used to control their movements. It plays a vital role in enhancing vehicle performance, safety, and comfort, encompassing a wide range of technologies and principles to optimize the behavior and control of vehicles in various driving conditions.

This Special Issue focuses on some of the main research directions included in the field of vehicle dynamics and control such as vehicle kinematics and dynamics; suspension systems; tire mechanics; vehicle stability control; vehicle powertrain control; autonomous driving technologies; vehicle simulation and testing; and so on. These research directions are interconnected and aim to improve vehicle performance, safety, and driver comfort, driving forward advancements in automotive engineering and transportation technology.

Researchers from universities, research institutes, and industry are cordially invited to submit original articles on this topic.

This paper presents a method to design a path tracking controller with a constraint on tire slip angles under low-friction road conditions. On a low-friction road surface, a lateral tire force is easily saturated and decreases as a tire slip angle increases by a large steering angle. Under this situation, a path tracking controller cannot achieve its maximum performance. To cope with this problem, it is necessary to limit tire slip angles to a value where the maximum lateral tire force is achieved. The most commonly used controllers for path tracking, linear quadratic regulator (LQR) and model predictive control (MPC), are adopted as a controller design methodology. The control inputs of LQR and MPC are front and rear steering angles and control yaw moment, which have been widely used for path tracking. The constraint derived from tire slip angles is imposed on the steering angles of LQR and MPC. To fully verify the performance of the path tracking controller with the constraint on tire slip angles, a simulation is conducted on vehicle simulation software. From the simulation results, it is shown that the path tracking controller with the constraint on tire slip angles presented in this paper is quite effective for path tracking on low-friction road surface.
