Automated speed selection for heavy duty vehicles
2007 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Many different advanced driver assistance systems are currently being developed to improve road safety and vehicle performance in many areas. The aim of this project has been to create a cruise control system which takes the legal speed limit and road geometry en route into account when determining the appropriate vehicle speed. The system uses a digital map to gain information about curvature and speed limits, and a vehicle model to calculate appropriate control actions. When lowering the speed is required the system coasts with no fueling, thus saving fuel and brake wear.
