This project deals with the study and design of a direct yaw rate control for a two rear independent wheel drive Formula Student electric vehicle. It takes as a base of design the 2016-17 season car fully built and developed car by the students of e-Tech Racing Formula Student team of the EEBE First chapters are composed by an introduction of Formula Student concept and its environment, the main technical characteristics of the car and the mathematic base about vehicle dynamics The core of the project resides in the chapters 4 and 5, where it is presented the algorithm and the controller. In chapter 4 is detailed an explanation of all different parts and is showed the system stability within the proposed PI controller. In Chapter 5, simulations of different scenarios have been done using inputs as step function, ramp o more realistic trajectory as Skip Pad. Finally, results obtained with the controller simulations are commented critically highlighting points of strength and weakness of the solution.
