Abstract

This paper presents a virtual sensor to estimate the vertical tire forces timely and accurately using stochastic Kalman Filtering and Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference Systems (ANFIS). Specifically, the suspension dynamics are captured from suspension deflection and vertical acceleration measurements, while the suspension damping, elastic, and kinematic characteristics are approximated by ANFIS models. A virtual testing environment has been constructed in IPG-CarMaker
R using a driver-in-theloop setup and random profiles have been added to the virtual road to approximate the ground irregularities. The virtual sensor has been verified under aggressive maneuvers performed by an experienced driver in a dynamic platform and in a race track (Nordschleife). The virtual sensor is compared to a preliminary quasi-static suspension-based observer developed during previous research steps and results demonstrate the superior ability of the enhanced design to capture wheel dynamic loads derived from road disturbances.
