Stability control validation for customised utility vehicles
2015 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis exemplifies an engineering service that validates the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system on customized vehicles. This service is important as the European Commission mandates that all utility vehicles be equipped with ESC as of November 1, 2014. The specific vehicle is a production utility vehicle that has had its suspension customised with a self-leveling pneumatic suspension.The validation is performed in accordance with the international standard UN-ECE R13H. In its Annex 9, the standard's purpose is to substantiate the ESC's responsiveness and brake assist systems performances. This standard indirectly requires the use of a driving robot with both steering and pedal actuation.The work done in the thesis includes the mechanical modification to the driving robot to fit the utility vehicle, design, construction and testing of outriggers, vehicle testing and data analysis. The work went beyond the standard as we also measured the adhesion of all the test track surface using a Halliday RT3 Curve.The results of these tests showed that the specific vehicle performed well according to the international standard.
