Abstract: This paper presents a new approach to the creation of vehicles Active Safety Systems (ASSs). The software for the virtual design of the vehicle dynamics is examined. The new algorithms of control that improve the quality of work of the existing ASSs are offered. Our algorithms combine high accuracy and speed to influencing lateral stability of the vehicle and preventing accident. Besides, the algorithms provide simplicity for setting any properties of the motion of ASS-controlled variables. The efficiency of our approach in improving the quality of work of existing ASSs is proved by the results of computer simulation of the car braking mechanism with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).
