A Fuzzy Distributed Control Algorithm for Intelligent Ground Speed Control of an Automotive Vehicle 2008-01-0902

This paper discusses the development of a Distributed Intelligent Ground Speed Control System, similar to a cruise control system, based on Fuzzy Logic. Fuzzy sets have been developed to input speed error, acceleration and the absolute speed error in order to arrive at a defuzzified output for the impeller clutch control, brake control and the control law selection. A PI controller and a Sliding Mode controller are utilized based on the magnitude of the Absolute Speed Error. A road model is introduced with erratic set speed profiles, which is introduced to replicate a similar situation for a Stop & Go procedure. The system is simulated in a MATLAB/SIMULINK environment and the results indicate smooth and cooperative switching between the controllers stimulated by the Fuzzy Logic Controller.
