Worse-case Methodology---Example Applications on Truck Rollover, VSC and Rollover Warning

Given the above motivation, it is clear that a worst-case disturbance generator needs to be developed. The worst-case disturbances will first be generated by linear optimal control and game theories. Depending on the existence, information structre, and goals of the control algorithms, we formulated 4 different linear cases. The linear solutions than serve as initial guess, base on which the final worst-case disturbances are obtained numerically.

Finally, two example vehicle applications will be demonstrated. The first is the rollover and jackknife of articulated vehicles (a one-player example). The second one is the evaluation of an interactive vehicle dynamic system (a two-player example). Application of the worst-case methodology on improved vehicle control and warning systems will be given.
