Research on motion control of electric vehicles has progressed considerably, but traction control has not been so sophisticated and practical because the velocity of vehicles and the friction force are immeasurable. This work takes advantage of the features of driving motors to estimate the maximum transmissible torque output in real time based on a purely kinematic relationship, and then proposes an innovative controller to follow the estimated value directly and constrain the torque reference for slip prevention. By comparison with prior control methods, the resulting control design approach is shown to be more effective and robust on an experimental electric vehicle. In addition, a new architecture for a two-dimensional vehicle stability control system is introduced based on the proposed traction control.
