Development of a Collision Avoidance System
The analysis of a rear-end collision warning/avoidance (CW/CA) system algorithm will be presented. The system is designed to meet several criteria:
System warnings should result in a minimum load on driver attention.
Automatic control of the brakes should not interfere with normal driving operation.
The system should perform well in a variety of driving conditions.
The resulting CA algorithm will use a tire-road friction estimate. The benefit of combining a tire-road friction estimator with a CA system will be studied.
