A new control algorithm and the adaptation laws required for estimation of unknown vehicle parameters have been developed for vehicle stability control (VSC). This algorithm is based on the Lyapunov Direct Method. A vehicle model with two degrees of freedom (DOF) was used to develop the control algorithm. In developing the equations of motion for this simple model, a new approach for introducing the needed stabilizing forces and moments was developed. In addition, an eight DOF model was developed for control algorithm evaluation. The model includes lateral, longitudinal, yaw, and roll motions of the body plus the rotational DOFs for all of the four wheels. Also included in the model is a transient tire model taking into account the tire lateral relaxation length. Using the validated 8 DOF simulation model, the new control algorithm was evaluated and the results show the advantages of using such an approach for enhancing vehicle stability during emergency steering maneuvers.
