This paper presents observer-based virtual sensors for YMC(Yaw Moment Control) systems by differential braking. A high-fidelity empirical model of the hydraulic unit in YMC system was developed for a model-based observer design. Optimal, adaptive, and robust observers were then developed and their estimation accuracy and robustness against model uncertainty were investigated via HILS tests. The HILS results indicate that the proposed disturbance attenuation approach indeed exhibits more satisfactory pressure estimation performance than the other approach with admissible degradation against the predefined model disturbance.
