This paper presents a method for using lateral tire force sensors to estimate vehicle sideslip angle and to improve vehicle stability of in-wheel-motor-driven electric vehicles (IWM-EVs). Considering that the vehicle motion is governed by tire forces, lateral tire force measurements give practical benefits in estimation and motion control. To estimate the vehicle sideslip angle, a state observer derived from the extended-Kalman-filtering (EKF) method is proposed and evaluated through field… CONTINUE READING
