A method of optimal driving force allocation to the wheels of multi-wheel vehicles is proposed. Practical application of in-wheel motors to vehicles expands the capability of vehicle control and efficient drive. The determination of necessary driving force on each wheel is essential factor for efficient drive especially for multi-wheel vehicles with individually controllable wheels. Optimal driving force allocation to each wheel has been formulated by minimizing the slip loss done by all the tires due to ground contact. Solving the equations with the specifications of an eight-wheel vehicle under several conditions, optimal driving force allocation and the combination of optimal steering angles were obtained. The result of the numerical simulation was found to be useful for target driving force on each wheel for efficient drive.
