Abstract

On vehicles there exists a close coupling between brake and suspension dynamics, making semi-active damper control a promising way for brake maneuver optimization, which has been widely researched in the automotive and motorcycle field. Experimental data of bicycle dynamics analyzed in this paper show substantial differences to classical vehicle dynamics. By first-principle control-oriented modeling and full vehicle nonlinear multibody simulation it is shown that this can be traced back to two phenomena: the dynamic rider response and fork bending. These are very general effects, but crucial for vehicle dynamics control on bicycles, one of the most widely used means of transportation.
