Analysis of camber control and torque vectoring to improve vehicle energy efficiency
Paper i proceeding, 2018

This paper focuses on the use of camber control and torque vectoring in order to make future vehicles more energy efficient and thereby more environmentally friendly. The energy loss during steady state cornering including rolling resistance loss, aerodynamic loss, longitudinal slip loss and lateral slip loss, is formulated and studied. Camber control, torque vectoring control and a combination of both are compared. From the simulation results, it can be concluded that during steady state cornering, torque vectoring has a very small contribution to energy reduction while camber control can make a significant contribution to energy saving. By combining torque vectoring and camber control during steady state cornering, in theory up to 14% energy saving are found for certain cases.
