Abstract: The paper puts forward a novel vehicle-network architecture of the power system based on the 4WIDIS EV. And then, the steering coordination control system's design of the 4WIDIS EV based on the novel vehicle-network architecture is focused on the analysis. Finally, the experimental data shows that the system can meet the actual steering requirements of synchronicity, accuracy and real-time.

Keywords: power steering control; steering coordination; four-in-wheel-motor drive; electric vehicles; vehicular networks.
