Side Slip Angle Control



Development of a virtual sensor (DVS®) in order to provide nonlinear sideslip angle estimation which is not currently available on production cars. Nonlinear estimation of sideslip angle is needed for a better vehicle dynamics management. This technology uses input variables only measured by standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC) sensors.


Robustness of estimation accuracy vs. variability of road grip (wet or dry), road type (racetrack, urban or extra-urban), drive style (sport or normal) and tire wear; vehicle stability performances are improved in cornering control, traction control and lateral dynamics; the DVS substitutes expensive devices which cannot be used in production cars.
