Methods for Verification of Post-Impact Control including Driver Interaction
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis project focuses on the verification method of a safety function called PICthat stands for Post-Impact Control which controls the vehicle motion of passengercars after being exposed to external disturbances produced by a 1st impact, aiming atavoiding or mitigating secondary events.The main objective was to select a promising method, among several candidates, todevelop further for testing the function and the interaction with the driver. To do thisis was first necessary to map the real destabilized states of motion that are targeted bythe function. These states are referred as Post-Impact problem space and are acombination of variables that describes the host vehicles motion at the instant thedestabilizing force has ceased. Knowing which states are requested by the solutioncandidates, it is possible to grade the rig candidates based on the capability ofcovering the problem space. Then, simulating the proposed rig solutions withMatlab/Simulink models to investigate which candidate fulfils best the problem space.The result of the simulations and other criteria is that a moving base simulator(Simulator SIM4) is most fitted to research verification. The second mostadvantageous solution is the rig alternative called Built-in Actuators.
