Two actuation mechanisms are considered for the comparison of performance capabilities in improving the yaw–sideslip handling characteristics of a road vehicle. Yaw moments are generated either by the use of single-wheel braking or via driveline torque distribution using an overdriven active rear differential. For consistency, a fixed reference vehicle system is used, and the two controllers are synthesized via a single design methodology. Performance measures relate to both open-loop and closed-loop driving demands, and include both on-centre and limit handling manoeuvres.
