Wheel-vehicle-step obstacle interaction

Chapter

Abstract

  • © 2015 The authors and IOS Press. The problem of overcoming a step obstacle by controlling the power distribution between the driving wheels of all-wheel-drive vehicles is analyzed. A mathematical model for traversing step obstacles by a single wheel that allows calculating the magnitudes of forces, including the torque and the longitudinal direction force that are needed to overcome the obstacle is developed. The results are applied to a 4x4 vehicle with individual distribution of power between the wheels.
