Professor Vladimir Vantsevich
Professor of Mechanical Engineering at University of Alabama Birmingham
Topic: Robotics and Energy Efficiency
The lecture presents a brief overview of research work in ground vehicle dynamics in 20th century and formulates several directions in dynamics of all-wheel drive vehicles (vehicles with two and larger number of the drive axles). To properly address vehicle system design problems, vehicle dynaics is considered as a theory of vehicle operational and consumer properties. Coupled dynamics of vehicle systems is explained by several case studies, and recent research work on interactive dynamics of vehicle systems of presented for a 4×4 military tactical vehicle.
Power distribution between the drive wheels of AWD vehicles is considered as a key element to enhance vehicle mobility, energy efficiency and stability/safety. Decoupling and establishing of interactive dynamics of vehicle systems illustrates advantages for mobility, energy efficiency and safety.
A new paradigm of agile tire dynamics is presented to further enhance dynamics and mobility of vehicles. A rotational kinematics sensor concept and study is discussed as a part of the tire agility.
