Context: Consumer tests which assess safety features of modern vehicles have a tradition in Europe. Recently, such test protocols have been substantially extended to also cover active safety systems like Volkswagen's Front Assist. Objective: Simulations for passive safety systems are already a widely adopted approach during vehicle development and internal(More)
This article discusses new challenges for series development regarding the vehicle safety that arise from the recently published AEB test protocol by the consumer-test-organisation EuroNCAP for driver assistance systems [6]. The tests from the test protocol are of great significance for an OEM that sells millions of cars each year, due to the fact that a(More)
Context: Since 2014 several modern cars were rated regarding the performances of their active safety systems at the European New Car Assessment Programme (EuroNCAP). Nowadays, consumer tests play a significant role for the OEM's series development with worldwide perspective, because a top rating is needed to underline the worthiness of active safety(More)
Vehicle's passengers and other traffic participants are protected more and more by integral safety systems. They continuously perceive the vehicle's environment to prevent dangerous situations by e.g. emergency braking systems. Furthermore, increasingly intelligent vehicle functions are still of major interest in research and development to reduce the risk(More)
This paper describes the usage of a Gameboy Advance (GBA) for non-gaming applications in control systems. The GBA is extended with the XPort and the XPort Robot Controller developed by Charmed Labs. Typical control problems include balancing an inverted pendulum about its unstable vertical equilibrium point. This paper also explores the capabilities of this(More)
Context: Recently, test protocols from organizations like European New Car Assessment Programme (EuroNCAP) were extended to also cover active safety systems. Objective: The official EuroNCAP test protocol for Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)/Forward Collision Warning (FCW) systems explicitly defines to what extent a Vehicle-Under-Test (VUT) is allowed to(More)
The Segboy is based on a self-balancing, two-wheeled vehicle in reference [1]. This device was built at the College of Engineering Control Systems Laboratory (COECSL) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and is used in a classroom setting in many occasions. This paper describes the self-balancing control of this two-wheeled vehicle using the(More)
