Radar-Based Vehicle Following Control Algorithm of Micro-Scale Electric Vehicle 2007-01-3590
This paper proposes a driving torque control algorithm of micro-scale electric vehicle (NOVEL-I) at the scene of preceding vehicle following. First, an inter-vehicle distance controller aiming to keep a safe inter-vehicle distance is designed. Next, the experiments of vehicle following situation by automatic driving with the designed controller are realized and the effectiveness of the controller is verified. Next, the designed controller is applied to the human-vehicle closed-loop system as driver assistance systems, thereby enhancing driving comfort and reducing driving workload for human. Finally, the experiment of vehicle following by cooperative driving between the human and the controller is conducted. The experimental result in cooperative driving is compared with manual driving, and the effectiveness of the controller is verified.
