Modeling and analysis of road vehicle following system

Tumin, Saiful Asmin (2012) Modeling and analysis of road vehicle following system. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Electrical Engineering.



This thesis includes the research on the control strategies of a convoy vehicle on the road highway. The control strategy used for this research is the Vehicle Following control strategy. This research covers only on the longitudinal vehicle convoy and is assuming that the vehicle dynamic is ideally perfect. Starting with the literature review on the Automation of Highway at present, the research continues with the building up of mathematical model and designing the Simulink model of the system, using Matlab / Simulink. This is followed by using the Optimization method in order to find the right value of gains. The result shows that with the use of correct method, the value of gains can be achieved easily and will result in good stability in the vehicle convoy and the individual vehicle. Stability is important as the vehicles need to move with a safety distance and comfort for different input velocity. Stability will guarantee the safety of the drivers.
