Abstract:
In March of 1995, the University of Texas at Austin Center for Electromechanics (UT-CEM) began work on developing active suspension control algorithms for four-wheeled, off-road, rough terrain, vehicles. To serve as a test platform to validate simulations, a four corner test-rig, representing a military HMMWV at one third scale, was designed and fabricated. Multiwheel control algorithms were developed, based on single wheel concepts previously described in SAE publications. The four-wheel test-rig performance compared well with single wheel test-rig performance, showing that the active suspension concepts developed by UT-CEM, which do not require advanced terrain knowledge (i.e., no “look-ahead”), are compatible with full vehicle control.
