This is the first ever book that provides a comprehensive coverage of automotive control systems. The presentation of dynamic models in the text is also unique. The dynamic models are tractable while retaining the level of richness that is necessary for control system design. Much of the mateiral in the book is not available in any other text.

Vehicle Dynamics and Control provides a comprehensive coverage of vehicle control systems and the dynamic models used in the development of these control systems. The control system topics covered in the book include cruise control, adaptive cruise control, ABS, automated lane keeping, automated highway systems, yaw stability control, engine control, passive, active and semi-active suspensions, tire models and tire-road friction estimation. In developing the dynamic model for each application, an effort is made to both keep the model simple enough for control system design but at the same time rich enough to capture the essential features of the dynamics. A special effort has been made to explain the several different tire models commonly used in literature and to interpret them physically. The use of feedback control systems on automobiles is growing rapidly. This book is intended to serve as a useful resource to researchers who work on the development of such control systems, both in the automotive industry and at universities. The book can also serve as a textbook for a graduate level course on vehicle dynamics and control.Review:
From the reviews: "The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive coverage of vehicle control systems and the dynamic models used in the development of these control systems. ... This book is an excellent resource to researchers who work on the development of control systems. It can also serve as a textbook for a graduate level course on vehicle dynamics and control."
