In this study, the vehicle's dynamic behavior during braking and steering input is investigated by considering the quarter-car model. The case study for this research is a Sport-Utility Vehicle (SUV) with the anti-lock braking system (ABS) and nonlinear dynamic equations are considered for it along with Pacejka tire model. Regulating the wheel slip ratio in the optimal value for different conditions of the road surface (dry, wet and icy) during braking is considered as the ABS control strategy. In order to regulating the wheel slip ratio in the optimal value, an intelligent adaptive fuzzy controller that can perform online parameter estimation is considered. In this regard, the proposed controller tracks the optimal wheel slip ratio with changing the condition of the road surface from dry to wet and icy. The adaptive fuzzy controller consists of linguistic base, inference engine and defuzzifier section. The wheel slip ratio and vehicle longitudinal acceleration are selected as inputs of the controller, controller adapter and detector of the road surface condition. During braking and steering input, effective parameters of the wheel that are affected on the vehicle's dynamic behavior and its stability are investigated.
Key words: Anti-lock brake system / sport-utility vehicle / adaptive fuzzy controller / stability / online parameter estimation
