Combined Steering and Braking Control

Integrating HGV trailer braking control and active steering to enhance vehicle stability

Active trailer steering has been shown to improve both path tracking performance and roll stability of tractor-semitrailer vehicles at high speed. The combined steering and braking control project aims to integrate slip control braking with active steering trailer for even further enhanced stability.

Techniques based around Model Predictive Control have been successfully demonstrated in simulation and the focus is now on real time implementation on the CVDC test vehicles.
