STUDY REGARDING THE USE OF CONTROL MOMENT GYROSCOPE FOR THE STABILIZATION OF AUTOMOTIVE DYNAMICS
The application of gyroscopes in the naval and aerospace sectors has gained momentum during the Second World War, bringing these hitherto relatively obscure devices to the technological forefront from the area of experimental physics. The main application in these areas are gyrocompasses and control moment gyroscopes (CMGs).
The CMG is a relatively efficient torque generator and is based on the gyroscopic principle from physics (mechanics). As such, they are used to counteract the roll and pitch of seagoing vessels, a CMG of 100kg being able to generate a control-torque in the order of thousands of Nm.
The aim of this paper is to examine the possible application of CMGs on road going vehicles in order to improve comfort and stability.
