An Automatic Driving System of Automobiles by Guidance Cables 730127
The authors developed an automatic driving system capable of controlling a motor vehicle along a guidance cable. Fabricated with fully electrical components, the equipment has a very simple and reliable structure and could be made at a low cost.
The test results were successful. The course deviations were within 20 mm in steady-state running for speed ranging 20-100 km/h. The riders in the vehicle felt fairly comfortable.
The system is going to be used for driverless tests of automobiles, and it is also expected to be applied for the dual-mode system.
