Increases in the standard of living and wealth of society as a whole have led to greater expectations for both comfort and enjoyment as well as an increased desire for protection and safety. These increased expectations and desires are present in all aspects of daily life. The automobile, as an unavoidable component of individual mobility, is no exception. The needs and desires of modern society have greatly affected both chassis technology and vehicle control systems. The goal of vehicle control systems is to improve vehicle safety by giving the driver more control during nonlinear, combined maneuvers that may ordinarily be difficult or impossible to master.
