An integrated approach to autonomous vehicle systems: Theory and implementation

Academic Article

Abstract

  • An integrated approach to autonomous vehicle systems was described. Optimal combinations of the wheel driving forces and a logical control strategy were presented to operate traction control. The optimal forces ensure the maximum running gear efficiency and provide the required factors of the vehicle ride stability and turnability while keeping the desired correlation between the actual speed and acceleration of the truck. It was shown that the traction and speed of the vehicle could be improved if the driving forces of the drive wheels are controlled using optimal distributions of the forces among the wheels.
