Basically, there are two main techniques to control the vehicle yaw moment. First method is the indirect yaw moment control, which works on the basis of active steering control (ASC). The second one being the direct yaw moment control (DYC), which is based on either the differential braking or the torque vectoring. An innovative idea for the direct yaw moment control is introduced by using an active controller system to supervise the lateral dynamics of vehicle and perform as an active yaw moment control system, denoted as the stabilizer pendulum system (SPS). This idea has further been developed, analyzed, and implemented in a standalone direct yaw moment control system, as well as, in an integrated vehicle dynamic control system with a differential braking yaw moment controller. The effectiveness of SPS has been evaluated by model simulation, which illustrates its superior performance especially on low friction roads.
