In the development of our new electric car concept: EO smart connecting car 2 (EOscc2), a number of new features and techniques are to be implemented (e.g., extended manoeuvrability, path planning and autonomous navigation) to meet the requirements for future mobility demands.
This paper presents the developed control method based on rapid control prototyping for suspension and steering mechanisms of EOscc2. This method enables implementation and tests in hardware/software-in- theloop fashions. We give a comparison between the used actuator types in terms of cost, weight, power, and mechanical features. The test results of the developed systems (speed, power) are also illustrated. In addition, a comparison of the developed software solutions (such as communication protocols, modular expandability, and platform dependency) is demonstrated. Some recommendations on the use of such actuators and an account of some of their merits and flaws especially considering weight and installation space are detailed.
