Method for Poly-Functional Adaptive Traction Control
This invention is a novel adaptive method for controlling traction in a ground vehicle using low-cost sensors. This control strategy was developed with the intention of improving upon the approach that an expert human driver takes when they develop a subjective "feel" for the road. In addition to having higher performance than conventional traction...

A Method for Synthesizing Multiple Command Signals to Cause Multiple Response Signals to Match a Desired Target
Vehicle test rigs are typically used to analyze dynamic motions of a vehicle and/or suspension component in order to design the optimal setup. These systems require the development of a drive file, which is a synchronized batch sequence of dynamic time-series commands that define the forces or displacements that should be achieved by the actuators....
