Sabbioni, E., Cheli, F., and Melzi, S., "Development of an ESP Control Logic Based on Force Measurements Provided by Smart Tires," SAE Int. J. Passeng. Cars - Mech. Syst. 6(1):43-51, 2013, doi:10.4271/2013-01-0416.
The present paper investigates possible enhancement of ESP performance associated with the use of smart tires. In particular a novel control logic based on a direct feedback on the longitudinal forces developed by the four tires is considered. The control logic was developed using a simulation tool including a 14 dofs vehicle model and a smart tires emulator. Performance of the control strategy was evaluated in a series of handling maneuvers. The same maneuvers were performed on a HiL test bench interfacing the same vehicle model with a production ESP ECU. Results of the two logics were analyzed and compared.
