Takagi–Sugeno Fuzzy Unknown Input Observers to Estimate Nonlinear Dynamics of Autonomous Ground Vehicles: Theory and Real-Time Verification

Abstract : In this article, we address the simultaneous estimation problem of the lateral speed, the steering input, and the effective engine torque, which play a fundamental role in vehicle handling, stability control, and fault diagnosis of autonomous ground vehicles. Due to the involved longitudinal-lateral coupling dynamics and the presence of unknown inputs (UIs), a new nonlinear observer design technique is proposed to guarantee the asymptotic estimation performance. To this end, we make use of a specific Takagi-Sugeno (TS) fuzzy representation with nonlinear consequents to exactly model the nonlinear vehicle dynamics within a compact set of the vehicle state. This TS fuzzy modeling not only allows reducing significantly the real-time computational effort in estimating the vehicle variables but also enables an effective way to deal with unmeasured nonlinearities. Moreover, via a generalized Luenberger observer structure, the UI decoupling can be achieved without requiring a priori UI information. Using Lyapunov stability arguments, the UI observer design is reformulated as an optimization problem under linear matrix inequalities, which can be effectively solved with standard numerical solvers. The effectiveness of the proposed TS fuzzy UI observer design is demonstrated with real-time hardware-in-the-loop experiments.
