Parameter Estimation of Vehicle Handling Model Using Genetic Algorithm


Department of Mechanical Engineering,Khajeh Nasire Toosi University of Technology


This paper implements a derivative free optimization method called `Genetic Algorithm' to estimate the parameters of a four-wheel, three degrees of freedom vehicle handling model. At first the model is developed containing a non-linear tire model called `Fiala'. Then, an error function is defined and the `Genetic Algorithm' optimization method is introduced and applied to minimize the error. Finally, verification of parameter estimation is checked.
