In this paper, a tailored four-step Adams–Bashforth–Moulton (ABM)
algorithm is applied to a semirecursive formulation to perform a
real-time simulation of a semitrailer truck. In the ABM algorithm, each
integration step involves two function evaluations, namely predictor and
corrector. This is fundamentally different when compared to the classic
fourth-order Runge–Kutta (RK) integrator approach that contains four
function evaluations. A semitrailer truck under investigation is modeled
in term of a semirecursive method and simulated by using the presented
ABM algorithm. The results show that the four-step ABM method can reduce
CPU time almost 50% for solving the truck dynamics with very similar
accuracy, in comparison to the fourth-order RK method. The presented ABM
algorithm could be used in the semirecursive formulation to carry out
accurate real-time simulation of medium-large vehicle systems.
