Abstract

The integration of rollover prevention and yaw stability control objectives in electronic stability control has traditionally been done based on a priority calculation. This paper focuses on an integrated electronic stability control system wherein the objectives of yaw stability and rollover prevention are addressed simultaneously, rather than one at a time. First, we show that staying on a desired planar trajectory at a specified speed results in an invariant rollover index. This implies that rollover prevention can be achieved whenever there is a danger of rollover only by reducing vehicle speed, since changing the desired vehicle trajectory is not a desirable option. In this regard, it is shown that a vehicle which reduces its speed before entering a sharp curve performs significantly better than a vehicle that uses differential braking during the turn for yaw stability control.
