Balancing energy consumption and prolonging network lifetime have been hot topics in energy limited wireless sensor networks (WSNs). It is generally known that multiple sensor nodes collaborating with each other to perform tasks are an important means of energy balancing. In addition, a reasonable task allocation strategy is also an efficient method for… (More)
Four wheels independent driving (4WID) electric vehicle uses four motors. if some motors get faults, the whole vehicle would loss the stability to cause casualties. To solve the problem mentioned above, the fault tolerance control strategy of two motors of the 4WID electric vehicle running in straight line was studied and solved in this paper. The… (More)
This paper is to present a novel design of Electric Vehicle (EV) driven by hub motors. This new EV has an independent suspension and four-wheel steering to move transversely and steer in situ.
