Transfer Learning for Input Estimation of Vehicle Systems

10/26/2020 ∙ by Liam M. Cronin, et al. ∙ 0

This study proposes a learning-based method with domain adaptability for input estimation of vehicle suspension systems. In a crowdsensing setting for bridge health monitoring, vehicles carry sensors to collect samples of the bridge's dynamic response. The primary challenge is in preprocessing; signals are highly contaminated from road profile roughness and vehicle suspension dynamics. Additionally, signals are collected from a diverse set of vehicles vitiating model-based approaches. In our data-driven approach, two autoencoders for the cabin signal and the tire-level signal are constrained to force the separation of the tire-level input from the suspension system in the latent state representation. From the extracted features, we estimate the tire-level signal and determine the vehicle class with high accuracy (98 accuracy). Compared to existing solutions for the vehicle suspension deconvolution problem, we show that the proposed methodology is robust to vehicle dynamic variations and suspension system nonlinearity.
