This paper proposes a new model-based hierarchical control strategy for the application of brake torque distribution to vehicle stability control. A three-layer control architecture is adopted, and the focus of the paper is on the intermediate layer which employs a form of model predictive control. To achieve this a non-linear vehicle model is linearised at successive time instants about non-equilibrium operating points. Simulations show that the new controller is more efficient (uses reduced brake authority) compared to a conventional rule-based control algorithm. It also has the advantage of being highly flexible for future application in fully integrated chassis systems. Copyright © 2007 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
