Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper we study a new steering controller for cars equipped with 4-wheel steer-by-wire. The controller commands front and rear steering angles with the objective of tracking reference yaw rate and sideslip signals corresponding to the desired vehicle handling behaviour. The controller compensates for changes in vehicle dynamics with forward speed and incorporates an anti-windup scheme to mitigate the effects of the saturation or failure of the rear steering actuators. We analyse the robust stability and performance of the resulting non-linear control system.
