This work addresses the lateral stabilisation problem of four-wheels ground vehicles. The objective is to estimate the largest state-space region such that the closed-loop vehicle lateral stability can be guaranteed. Sum-of-squares (SOS) programming technique is applied to find these maximum invariant sets while accounting for steering and yaw moment input saturations. The algorithm allows the region of attraction (RoA) to be approximated by a level set of a Lyapunov function (LF) and the computation of polynomial state feedback control laws. The method is applied for both straight-line motion and cornering manoeuver. Finally, a Monte-Carlo analysis is presented to show that the proposed SOS-based methodology can be used as a valid analysis and design tool considering a real vehicle application. (AU)
