This paper presents the development of an active front steering (AFS) control system and normal force control (NFC) scheme utilizing fuzzy reasoning to track neutral steer yaw rate. The performance of the stand-alone controllers is compared with an integrated chassis management scheme combining the two. The simulation results indicate that the NFC by the active suspension as a stand-alone system shows improvement in vehicle handling response. The integrated chassis control scheme utilizing the steering and suspension controllers is proven to be more effective in attaining the desired performance that would not be attained individually.
