This paper deals with improving comfort and handling for a ground vehicle through the coordinated control of
different active systems available in passenger cars, e.g., electronic stability control, active roll control and engine torque
The authors first describe separate control systems, each with its logic, showing advantages and limits, then propose
various possible integrations, aiming at exploiting the benefits of a coordinated approach.
Finally, the proposed control logics are tested on a vehicle model: simulation results prove the effectiveness of the
approach in improving vehicle response during typical handling maneuvers.
