Torque vectoring with active steering for improved lateral performance in electric vehicles

Chapter


Abstract


  • This paper investigates the lateral vehicle performance when combining

    torque vectoring with active steering. The left and right front wheels are independently

    steered with linear actuators, where the steering angles are velocity dependent. The steering

    angle is combined with a torque vectoring algorithm and the left and right Ackermann ratio

    is adjusted for high speed turns to maintain tyre traction.
