Safety Margin Estimation in Steady State Maneuvers
Other conference contribution, 2006

This paper suggests a metric defining the margin of the actual longitudinal speed to a speed at which either the front or rear tires reach saturation. This margin is referred to as the safety margin of the vehicle. It is shown that this safety margin is particularly useful for systems that use continuous yaw-rate error elimination, such as advanced AWD systems. The proposed safety margin was evaluated using computer simulations.
