  • Abstract

  • During the last few years, the automotive industry has focused efforts on the development of ‘Steer-by-Wire’ Systems. Among the advantages of such a system, the most important are the enhancement of passive safety systems and the introduction of lateral active safety systems.

  • One of the goals in the development of steer by wire systems is to provide the driver with tactile feedback from the road. The importance of force feedback or ‘road feeling’ has been well understood in both the tele-manipulator systems and the automotive field.

  • Force feedback is one of the most valuable parameters in providing for the driver with accurate control of the vehicle. In this context, it is very important to provide a tunable realistic steering feel that ensures a comfortable driving feel.

  • The Hand-Wheel Angle-Torque Characteristic

  • According to [1], in a mechanical steering system, the hand-wheel angle-torque (h- Th) characteristic is clearlyone of the most important items that influences the driving feeling.

  • The h- Th characteristic is influenced by the vehicle velocity, the tire properties, the suspension parameters, and the road.

  • In a steer-by-wire system, different steering feelings can be obtained by modifying the h- Th characteristic.

  • Laboratory Test-bed

  • The main purpose of the laboratory test-bed is to provide a mean of generating the sensed parameters needed for control of the Steer-by-Wire system.

  • To Simulate the aligning torques on the wheels through a complete model of the vehicle dynamics.

1Vehicle Velocity Influence

2Tire Properties Influence

  • Generic Description an Steer-by-Wire System

  • No longer a mechanical connection between the driver and the steering system.

  • Significant similarities with tele-manipulator systems.

  • The control of both the steering wheel and steering system rely on a unique controller.

  • At higher vehicle velocity (V), the gradient Th/hincreases.

  • At higher vehicle velocity, the hysteresis width of the Hand-Wheel Torque for zero Hand-Wheel Angle becomes narrower.

  • As the Cornering Stiffness (CS) of the tire increases, the gradient Th/hincreases.

  • As the Cornering Stiffness, the hysteresis width of the Hand-Wheel Torque for zero Hand-Wheel Angle increases.

  • As the Caster increases (Ca), the gradient Th/hincreases.

  • As the Caster increases, the hysteresis width of the Hand-Wheel Torque for zero Hand-Wheel Angle decreases.

  • As the Friction Coefficient () between the tire and the road increases, the gradient Th/hdecreases.

  • As the Friction coefficient between the tire and the road increases, the hysteresis width of the Hand-Wheel Torque for zero Hand-Wheel Angle becomes narrower.
