    • Adaptive Tire Model For Dynamic Tire-Road Friction Force Estimation 

      Spike, Jonathan (University of Waterloo, 2013-10-01)
      As vehicle dynamics research delves deeper into better insights in performance, modeling, and vehicle controls, one area remains of utmost importance: tire and road friction forces. The vehicle’s interaction with the road ...
    • Design of a Smart Tire Sensor System 

      Bastiaan, Jennifer (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-22)
      A research project is conducted that involves the design of a smart tire sensor system that can determine six tire outputs, including tire longitudinal force, tire lateral force, tire vertical force, tire aligning moment, ...
    • Development of an Integrated Estimation Method for Vehicle States, Parameters and Tire Forces 

      Rezaeian, Ayyoub (University of Waterloo, 2015-01-22)
      Stability and desirable performance of vehicle control systems are directly dependent on the quality and accuracy of sensory and estimated data provided to the controllers. Tire forces and vehicle states such as lateral ...
    • A Potential Field-Based Model Predictive Path-Planning Controller for Autonomous Road Vehicles 

      Rasekhipour, Yadollah; Khajepour, Amir; Chen, Shih-Ken; Litkouhi, Baktiar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2016-09-26)
      Artificial potential fields and optimal controllers are two common methods for path planning of autonomous vehicles. An artificial potential field method is capable of assigning different potential functions to different ...
    • Trailer Sway Control Using an Active Hitch 

      Fry Sykora, Connor (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-24)
      The handling and yaw stability characteristics of passenger vehicles are drastically changed when towing a trailer, which can lead to unsafe oscillations in the trailer yaw, known as trailer sway. This thesis examines the ...
