Analysis of tire-soil interaction models for real-time off-road simulation

    Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


    Tire-soil interaction models define the forces, stresses and movement
    at the boundary between tire and soil. This work assessed the
    real-time capabilities of these models. Material and method: i)
    Code the models using MATLAB/Simulink; ii) Combine a full
    car with each tire-soil interaction model for a horizontal track; iii)
    Deploy and evaluate models on different hardware platforms.
    Results: Given in terms of computational performance (FLOPS,
    execution time, hardware) and capabilities (tire and soil parameter
    combinations, longitudinal relaxation length, bulldozing effects).
    Conclusions: There is a trade-off between model accuracy,
    tuning complexity and computational resources required.
