Publication year 2013 Abstract The Integrated Vehicle Safety Department of TNO (Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research) investigates the application of modern control methods in the Integrated Vehicle Dynamics Control (IVDC) field, as a strategic research topic of the Beyond Safe framework. The aim of IVDC is to optimize the vehicle performance by maximizing the synergy between vehicle system like braking, suspension and steering systems and thereby enable improvements in the vehicle safety and comfort for all driving conditions. This article presents the first steps undertaken by the authors to develop and experimentally evaluate an optimal IVDC strategy for stability control using only the braking system. More specifically it presents the structure of the controller, the vehicle and tire models used, the State Dependent Riccati Equation (SDRE) control technique and the experimental evaluation.
