Abstract: Yaw disturbance rejection control (YDRC) is developed to improve the handling performance of armoured vehicle due firing impact. Therefore, a complete system configuration of instrumented half-scaled armoured vehicle is required to interface the YDRC algorithm with integrated measurement and control (IMC) data acquisition system, inertial measurement unit (IMU) and rotary encoder sensors. By using this configuration, the impact of firing test has been evaluated at maximum firing angle of 90° and vehicle speed of 40 km/h. Based on the actual testing, the handling response of the armoured vehicle in terms of yaw rate and angle, lateral displacement and acceleration has been improved compare to passive armoured vehicle up to 45% of reduction.
