The control of the longitudinal, lateral and vertical dynamics of four-wheeled vehicles, both of conventional type as well as fully-electric, is important not only for general safety of vehicular traffic in general, but also for future automated driving. Groups of vehicles can travel more safely with techniques to avoid collisions due to unintended or unexpected movements of one or more members. Sliding Mode Control of Vehicular Dynamics provides an overview of this important topic. Topics covered include an introduction to sliding mode control; longitudinal vehicle dynamics control via sliding modes generation; sliding mode control of traction and braking in two-wheeled vehicles; lateral vehicle dynamics control via sliding modes generation; stability control of heavy vehicles; sliding mode approach in semi-active suspension control; and observer-based parameter identification for vehicle dynamics assessment. Each chapter introduces the problem formulation and a general overview of its physical aspects, provides a survey of the relevant literature on the topic, and reports on the authors' contributions to solving the control problem. This book is essential reading for researchers involved in vehicle control, from both industry and academia, as well as advanced students.
