Optimal control and lap time optimization of race vehicles

Speaker: Roberto Lot, University of Padova
Venue: CAP Seminar Room – Imperial College – London
Date and Time: 2012-11-16 14:00:00-15:00:00
Abstract: Lap time optimization of racing motorcycles and four-wheeled vehicles is a challenging task that requires the solution of non-linear optimal control problems. This talk will describe an indirect approach to the problem and its implementation for racing motorcycles, racing karts and sports hybrid electric vehicles. Some techniques will be illustrated for an efficient formulation of problems and fast numerical solution. Correlation between simulations results and experimental data collected on track will be discussed. Additionally, the application of these techniques to the improvement of the road vehicle performances and safety will be outlined.
