Body Slip Angle Estimation for Antilock Braking System

Title: Body Slip Angle Estimation (BSAE) for Antilock Braking System and Electronic Stability System

Abstract of the Project:

In the Automotive terminology Slip Angle is the difference between the direction of the vehicle travelling known as heading or course over ground and the direction that the body is pointing also called true heading. For the proper functioning of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and to overcome the undesirable behaviors such as Over-steering and Under-steering, body slip angle plays a very important role in maintaining the stability of the vehicle.

This project mainly focuses on the estimation of the body slip angle by developing MATLAB SIMULINK models from the given steering angle input by the driver. The major application of this is when some quantity cannot be measured directly, and has to take aid of the available measurements. Accurate online estimation of the vehicle side slip angle has the potential to enable development of new automotive safety systems, and to improve existing algorithms that use information about the vehicle side slip angle.
