Title: A sliding mode scheme for optimal braking and estimation of road/tyre friction detection
Authors: Patel, Nitin

Issue Date: 2006

Citation: Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences, 2006, 334, Advances in Variable Structure and Sliding Mode Control / C. Edwards, E. Fossas Colet, L. Fridman (eds.), IEEE International Workshop on Variable Structure Systems (8th : 2004 : Barcelona, Spain.); pp. 375-394.
Abstract: Researchers are constantly trying to enhance the safety, driving comfort, traffic circulation and reduce environmental pollution associated with vehicles. Presently there are many on-board controllers available to improve safety and vehicle handling including anti-lock brake systems (ABS), traction control systems (TCS), adaptive intelligent cruise control, active yaw control and active suspension systems. However these control systems only perform to their full potential if they have access to accurate information about the vehicle behaviour in real time.
