报告摘要:

Pneumatic tires andrubber wheels are critical components in mobile systems such as vehicles andground robots that are widely used for passenger and goods transportation. Thetire/road interactions in these systems play an extremely important role fornot only system design but also safe operation. In this talk, I will first presenttwo different modeling schemes for on-line estimation of the tire/road frictioncoefficient and braking control for automated vehicles. I will then present thedevelopment of a tire rubber deformation sensing system for enhancing real-timetire/road friction estimation. An analytical sensing output model that is usedto capture the tire/road friction characteristics will be presented. Thetesting data has showed the feasibility of the estimate of wheel/groundinteractions such as tire friction coefficient. I will further discuss how touse the developed tire model to understand stability and agility of professionalracing car driving skills and design human-inspired autonomous aggressivemaneuvers for active safety control. If time permits, I will also brieflypresent various other research projects at the Robotics, Automation andMechatronics (RAM) Lab at Rutgers University.
