Abstract

This paper presents the validation of an integrated chassis controller that unites three groups of actuators for the electric vehicle (EV) with independent in-wheel electric motors (IWMs) for each wheel. Controlled actuators are the IWMs, the active suspension, and the braking system. The models of test benches and the designed architecture of the X-in-the-loop network are presented. The proposed design approach allows testing the developed controller on a vehicle model in real-time and on hardware components.
