This engineering textbook is designed to introduce advanced control systems for vehicles, including advanced automotive concepts and the next generation of vehicles for ITS. For each automotive control problem considered, the authors emphasise the physics and underlying principles behind the control system concept and design. This is an exciting and rapidly developing field for which many articles and reports exist but no modern unifying text. An extensive list of references is provided at the end of each chapter for all the topics covered. It is currently the only textbook, including problems and examples, that covers and integrates the topics of automotive powertrain control, vehicle control, and intelligent transportation systems. The emphasis is on fundamental concepts and methods for automotive control systems, rather than the rapidly changing specific technologies. Many of the text examples, as well as the end-of-chapter problems, require the use of MATLAB and/or SIMULINK.

Optimal and Robust Scheduling for Networked Control Systems tackles the problem of integrating system components—controllers, sensors, and actuators—in a networked control system. It is common practice in industry to solve such problems heuristically, because the few theoretical results available are not comprehensive and cannot be readily applied by practitioners. This book offers a solution to the deterministic scheduling problem that is based on rigorous control theoretical tools but also addresses practical implementation issues. Helping to bridge the gap between control theory and computer science, it suggests that the consideration of communication constraints at the design stage will significantly improve the performance of the control system. Technical Results, Design Techniques, and Practical Applications The book brings together well-known measures for robust performance as well as fast stochastic algorithms to assist designers in selecting the best network configuration and guaranteeing the speed of offline optimization. The authors propose a unifying framework for modelling NCSs with time-triggered communication and present technical results. They also introduce design techniques, including for the codesign of a controller and communication sequence and for the robust design of a communication sequence for a given controller. Case studies explore the use of the FlexRay TDMA and time-triggered control area network (CAN) protocols in an automotive control system. Practical Solutions to Your Time-Triggered Communication Problems This unique book develops ready-to-use engineering tools for large-scale control system integration with a focus on robustness and performance. It emphasizes techniques that are directly applicable to time-triggered communication problems in the automotive industry and in avionics, robotics, and automated manufacturing.

Better Understand the Relationship between Powertrain System Design and Its Control Integration While powertrain system design and its control integration are traditionally divided into two different functional groups, a growing trend introduces the integration of more electronics (sensors, actuators, and controls) into the powertrain system. This has impacted the dynamics of the system, changing the traditional mechanical powertrain into a mechatronic powertrain, and creating new opportunities for improved efficiency. Design and Control of Automotive Propulsion Systems focuses on the ICE-based automotive powertrain system (while presenting the alternative powertrain systems where appropriate). Factoring in the multidisciplinary nature of the automotive propulsion system, this text does two things—adopts a holistic approach to the subject, especially focusing on the relationship between propulsion system design and its dynamics and electronic control, and covers all major propulsion system components, from internal combustion engines to transmissions and hybrid powertrains. The book introduces the design, modeling, and control of the current automotive propulsion system, and addresses all three major subsystems: system level optimization over engines, transmissions, and hybrids (necessary for improving propulsion system efficiency and performance). It provides examples for developing control-oriented models for the engine, transmission, and hybrid. It presents the design principles for the powertrain and its key subsystems. It also includes tools for developing control systems and examples on integrating sensors, actuators, and electronic control to improve powertrain efficiency and performance. In addition, it presents analytical and experimental methods, explores recent achievements, and discusses future trends. Comprised of five chapters containing the fundamentals as well as new research, this text: Examines the design, modeling, and control of the internal combustion engine and its key subsystems: the valve actuation system, the fuel system, and the ignition system Expounds on the operating principles of the transmission system, the design of the clutch actuation system, and transmission dynamics and control Explores the hybrid powertrain, including the hybrid architecture analysis, the hybrid powertrain model, and the energy management strategies Explains the electronic control unit and its functionalities—the software-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop techniques for developing and validating control systems Design and Control of Automotive Propulsion Systems provides the background of the automotive propulsion system, highlights its challenges and opportunities, and shows the detailed procedures for calculating vehicle power demand and the associated powertrain operating conditions.

As the automotive industry faces into the smart era through advances in sensing, computation, storage, communication, and actuation technologies, a larger number of more complex control applications with better performances are expected to be on board. This requires an implementation platform with abundant resources, which is a major challenge in the cost-sensitive automotive domain. The implementation platform, often embedded in an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and shared by multiple applications to save cost, is mainly comprised of a processor for computation, memory for storing instructions and data, and bus for internal and external communication. Conventionally, automotive control systems are designed using model-based approaches, where the details of the implementation platform are ignored. Techniques that integrate the characteristics of implementation resources into control algorithms design are largely missing. Such a separate design paradigm is too conservative in resources dimensioning and utilization for modern vehicles. This monograph presents recently developed approaches in automotive control systems design that take implementation resources into consideration, aiming to improve the control performances for a given amount of resources, or equivalently, realize the required control performances with fewer resources. While communication resources have been extensively explored in the literature of networked embedded control systems, this book focuses on memory and computation resources, which have started to receive attention from the academic community and industry just recently. As Electric Vehicles (EVs) have become a new trend in the automotive industry, energy resources of EVs are also investigated. A number of real-world applications validate the resource-aware automotive systems design techniques presented in the monograph. This text will be of interest to researchers and engineers in the automotive, embedded system and control domains.

Automotive Electronic Systems deals with the technological principles and practices used in modern electronic automotive systems. The book includes how electronic control units function in the whole electronic system of the car. After a brief introduction to the mechanical parts of the car, the electronic and microprocessor systems are discussed. Although electronic devices are controlled either by analogue or digital systems, the trend is toward the use of digital. The basic principles of operation of a microprocessor are therefore given attention by the author. Cars depend heavily on sensors, thus, the importance of the different sensors, such as temperature sensors, direct air flow sensors, and turbine flowmeters, is comprehensively explained. Another part of the automotive system is the actuators or relays and both the solenoid and motors are discussed. The operations of the electrical system from the generator, electronic ignition system, to electronic fuel control systems are examined. The book explains the choking device in the electronic fuel control system that is needed when starting a car or the throttle butterfly potentiometer that monitors the movement of the plate in the carburetor every time the accelerator pedal is pushed down or released. The other electronic and computer controlled devices in today’s modern cars such as on-board computers and electronic control of body systems are also comprehensively discussed. This book is helpful to car engine enthusiasts, car mechanics, car electricians, operators of car diagnostic equipment, and instructors of automotive electronic systems.

Vehicle Dynamics and Control provides a comprehensive coverage of vehicle control systems and the dynamic models used in the development of these control systems. The control system applications covered in the book include cruise control, adaptive cruise control, ABS, automated lane keeping, automated highway systems, yaw stability control, engine control, passive, active and semi-active suspensions, tire-road friction coefficient estimation, rollover prevention, and hybrid electric vehicles. In developing the dynamic model for each application, an effort is made to both keep the model simple enough for control system design but at the same time rich enough to capture the essential features of the dynamics. A special effort has been made to explain the several different tire models commonly used in literature and to interpret them physically. In the second edition of the book, chapters on roll dynamics, rollover prevention and hybrid electric vehicles have been added, and the chapter on electronic stability control has been enhanced. The use of feedback control systems on automobiles is growing rapidly. This book is intended to serve as a useful resource to researchers who work on the development of such control systems, both in the automotive industry and at universities. The book can also serve as a textbook for a graduate level course on Vehicle Dynamics and Control.
