A tire is an essential part on a vehicle. Different tires have different properties, and one of them is the longitudinal stiffness of the tire. Tire stiffness can be explained by modelling the tire as small thread compounds. These small thread compounds will have contact with the surface and will contain one adhesion and one sliding region. The slip is the motion of the thread compounds relative to the surface. The forces that act on the thread compounds are divided by slip and this is defined as tire stiffness.
This thesis presents a method to estimate the tire stiffness in real-time. By using different algorithms, such as Recursive Least Squares and Least Mean Square, a good approximation of the tire stiffness can be achieved.
