    The past decade witnessed active safety systems such as vehicle stability control (VSC) rapidly change the automotive electronic landscape by complementing passive safety systems such as seat belts and air bags. Most automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) offer laser-based or radar-based adaptive cruise control (ACC) or precrash systems (PCSs). ACC employs forward-looking sensors for longitudinal control of the vehicle through brake and throttle actuation. PCSs additionally utilize rear-looking sensors and driver-recognition cameras to prepare the vehicle's cabin for an imminent collision by seat belt pretensioning and head-restraint repositioning. Similarly, OEMs are releasing lateral control systems such as lane-keeping assistants (LKAs) or lane-departure warnings (LDWs), which use computer vision to detect the vehicle's orientation relative to lane markings and provide feedback to the driver through audible, visual, or haptic signals.

    Tire-road forces are crucial in vehicle dynamics and control because they are the only forces that a vehicle experiences from the ground. These forces significantly affect the lateral, longitudinal, yaw, and roll behavior of the vehicle. The maximum force that a tire can supply is determined by the maximum value of the tire-road friction coefficient for a given normal vertical load on the tire. For each tire, the normalized traction force \rho , alternatively called the coefficient of traction, is defined as View full abstract»

    Vehicle rollover is a public safety issue [1]–[3]. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) National Center for Statistics and Analysis, from 1991 to 2001 the number of passenger vehicle occupants killed in all motor vehicle crashes increased 4%, while fatalities in rollover crashes increased 10%. In 2001 alone, 10,138 people died in rollover crashes, a figure that represents 32% of occupant fatalities for the year [4], [5]. View full abstract»

    This article reviews various individual wheel torque control technologies for active automotive safety systems. The use of active drive torque-management for vehicle stability control is a relatively new technology that is still being developed by researchers and automotive manufacturers. Current approaches and effects in various types of devices and drivelines were discussed. Control strategies for cornering performance and vehicle yaw and roll stability related to active torque-management systems were investigated. Three major types of ADTM devices, namely, center couplings, ELSDs, and torque-vectoring systems, were described, and the models, control system design, and limitations of each were discussed.
