Title: ROAD VEHICLE CONVOY CONTROL METHOD, AND ROAD VEHICLE CONVOY
Abstract:
Said road vehicle convoy control method comprises applying (116), on a hinge, a moment, the amplitude of which varies on the basis of measured oscillations so as to absorb said measured oscillations. The moment is applied on the hinge by controlling an actuator of said hinge and jointly controlling: an electrical machine of a first wheel from a wheel set that belongs to part of chassis that pivot in relation to another wheel because of said hinge so as to increase the torque of said first wheel; and, simultaneously, an electrical machine of a second wheel from the same wheel set so as to keep the torque thereof constant or increase the torque of said second wheel less than the torque of the first wheel so as to apply said moment on said hinge in combination with the actuator.
