The superconducting magnetically levitated transport (Maglev) system is conceptualized as a next-generation high-speed transportation system. For practical use, it is important to achieve adequate ride comfort particularly in high-speed running. Maglev vehicles are composed of lightweight car bodies and relatively heavy bogies which are mounted with devices(More)
This article describes the scope of vehicle dynamics control application on micro-scale electric vehicle for enhancing its active safety. The use of in-wheel-motor control in various control objectives as active safety devices are stated in the paper. In the first half of the paper, the control systems for enhancing vehicle dynamics are described. The(More)
Research Objective Recent statistical data of traffic accidents reveals that pedestrian fatalities are a particular priority in Europe and Japan. To realize zero-traffic accident society, the objective of this paper is to develop a driver assistance system for pedestrian collision prevention based on using a monocular camera. Methodology As the concept of(More)
This paper describes a pedestrian collision warning system with crosswalk detection feature based on sensor fusion of a monocular camera and a millimeter wave radar. The method to decide about the presence of a pedestrian is based on the assumption that objects moving along a crosswalk can be interpreted as pedestrians under certain circumstances. The(More)
This Paper investigates a new shared control system which combines haptic steering guidance torque together with Direct Yaw-Moment Control (DYC) in order to enhance path tracking performance and achieve good human-machine cooperative characteristics. The conventional steering assistance systems had a drawback in causing interference between the steering(More)
Recently, automatic steering systems for emergency obstacle avoidance have been studied extensively. The control input of such active steering control systems can be classified into the steering angle and the steering torque input. The steering torque based control provides some degree of freedom for drivers to control the vehicle motion, thus it has(More)
