Modelling and Parameterisation of a Vehicle for Validity under Limit Handling
Conference contribution, 2008
This paper describes how a vehicle model from the VehicleDynamics Library is configured, parameterized and validated for predicting limit handling maneuvers. Especially, attention is given to the selection of subsystem models with suitable levels-of-detail as well the selection of performed measurements and measurement equipment. A strong principle throughout the presented work is component-based design where parameterizations are done on sub-system levels, no tuning on the final vehicle models is made. As a final test, the vehicle model is exposed to a sinusoidal steering input. It turns out that the correspondence between the model used and the real vehicle is acceptable for the driving scenario selected up to the limit of adhesion.
