Vehicle Variable Estimation in Diagnostic Context

Elie Accari, Denis Hamad, Chaiban Nasr

Abstract

Safety in vehicles has many aspects and is implemented in different ways by manufacturers. With more safety systems to come, the vehicle will certainly start to have an operating system to manage the whole. Neural networks have an adaptative behavior that can be trained to meet new conditions and have a certain inherent degree of robustness when used as variable estimators. In this paper, we present a simplified model of the vehicle suitable to create neural network architectures that estimate the forces applied to the wheel as well as the vehicle body slip angle and yaw rate. For this purpose, we use the veDyna simulator which substitutes safely and economically real test vehicles. Typical extraneous and erroneous data are then presented to test the robustness of the network in order to judge the applicability of this approach from ideal, exact calculation conditions to real life situations.
