Abstract: The simulation of the driver-vehicle robust steering control is represented. The system is assumed to have an affine linear uncertainty structure. The driver compensator operates on a perceived composite lateral position and heading errors of the vehicle. A robust stability testing function is used for computing the robustness margin of the driver-vehicle system. Simulation results of the closed-loop system show the existence of robustness margin for an example of a lane change manoeuvre at 120 km/h vehicle forward speed.

Keywords: directional stability; driver-vehicle systems; robustness margin; steering control.
