This paper presents our approach to TORCS Car Racing Competition 2009, it is based on a complete modular architecture capable of driving automatically a car along a track with or without oppents. The architecture is composed of five simple modules being each one responsible for a basic aspect of car driving. The modules control gear shiftings, steer(More)
This work presents a driving system designed for virtual racing situations. It is based on a complete modular architecture capable of automatically driving a car along a track with or without opponents. The architecture is composed of intuitive modules, with each one being responsible for a basic aspect of car driving. Moreover, this modularity of the(More)
Vehicles equipped with intelligent systems designed to prevent accidents, such as collision warning systems (CWSs) or lane-keeping assistance (LKA), are now on the market. The next step in reducing road accidents is to coordinate such vehicles in advance not only to avoid collisions but to improve traffic flow as well. To this end, vehicle-to-infrastructure(More)

Milané To decrease traffic accidents is a declared target of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Among them, rear-end collisions are one of the most common and constitute one of the as yet unsolved topics(More)
These days, mass-produced vehicles benefit from research on Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). One prime example of ITS is vehicle Cruise Control (CC), which allows it to maintain a pre-defined reference speed, to economize on fuel or energy consumption, to avoid speeding fines, or to focus all of the driver's attention on the steering of the vehicle.(More)
There is clear evidence that investment in intelligent transportation system technologies brings major social and economic benefits. Technological advances in the area of automatic systems in particular are becoming vital for the reduction of road deaths. We here describe our approach to automation of one the riskiest autonomous manoeuvres involving(More)
A major research topic in intelligent transportation systems (ITSs) is the development of systems that will be capable of controlling the flow of vehicular traffic through crossroads, particularly in urban environments. This could significantly reduce traffic jams, since autonomous vehicles would be capable of calculating the optimal speed to maximize the(More)
Traffic merging in urban environments is one of the main causes of traffic congestion. From the driver's point of view, the difficulty arises along the on-ramp where the merging vehicle's driver has to discern whether he should accelerate or decelerate to enter the main road. In parallel, the drivers of the vehicles already on the major road may have to(More)
Collision avoidance is one of the most difficult and challenging automatic driving operations in the domain of intelligent vehicles. In emergency situations, human drivers are more likely to brake than to steer, although the optimal maneuver would, more frequently, be steering alone. This statement suggests the use of automatic steering as a promising(More)
Research on intelligent transport systems (ITSs) is steadily leading to safer and more comfortable control for vehicles. Systems that permit longitudinal control have already been implemented in commercial vehicles, acting on throttle and brake. Nevertheless, lateral control applications are less common in the market. Since a too-sudden turn of the steering(More)
