Due to the rapidly changing techniques and technologies for information and
communication, the last decade has seen increasing improvements of the performance of passive
safety systems (seat belts, airbags, body structure,...) and active (system trajectory correction,
stability control, braking systems electromechanical, etc.). Then embedded electronics is becoming
more prevalent in vehicles (intelligent electric actuators, sensors, etc..). Nevertheless, the
possibilities offered by new technologies to improve the safety of passengers and pedestrians, are
still largely underused. For example, interactions between the various embedded systems (ABS, ESP,
semi-active suspension, etc...) are not generally considered as the linkages inherent in the dynamical
system that is the vehicle system cannot be neglected if we want to optimize its performance.
On the other hand LPV methods whose theoretical development in the context of robust
control, has less than a decade) have shown their advantage in space and aviation applications. They
allow the application of linear methods for performing robust control of nonlinear systems and / or
time-varying parameters. These methods require understanding a number of theoretical concepts
related to modeling, analysis, observation and control.
The vehicle systems (non-linear system, multi-variable) become now more complex systems
where the abundance of onboard functions should ensure better security. It is particularly interesting
to evaluate the potential of methods such LPV within this framework.
Thus type LPV controllers can help:
The main objective of the school is to demonstrate the value of this approach for controlling
the dynamic behavior of road vehicles to improve safety.
- To take into account the adaptability of the vehicle's response to situations encountered
(normal, critical, dangerous ...) and under the conditions of roads.
- To incorporate a model of actuators whose parameters are adjustable.
- To manage interaction with various actuators (brakes, suspension, steering ....) to optimize
the dynamic behavior of vehicles.
