Fault tolerant control of automatically controlled vehicles in response to brake system failures Conference Paper uri icon


  • The effects of brake system failures on the combined longitudinal and lateral dynamics of a vehicle are considered. It is assumed that a vehicle is equipped with four individual brake actuators, one at each wheel. Failure of any of the brake subsystems hampers the vehicle's ability to decelerate. This paper aims at detecting faults in a brake system and designing a fault tolerant brake control algorithm.
