—This paper reports on nonintrusive methods for characterizing the longitudinal performance of vehicles equipped with adaptive cruise control (ACC) systems. It reports the experimental setup and procedures for measuring ACC system performance, followed by the modeling and simulation of the measured ACC performance. To further assess the interaction of ACC(More)
SUMMARY This paper compares design approaches for achieving a headway control functionality for trucks and buses. The approaches considered are fuzzy logic [1], H ∞ [2], and a strategy based on headway range and its derivative (range-rate) [3]. For heavy vehicles, the control unit has a number of nonlinearities to compensate for, including full accelerator(More)
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a technology that allows a vehicle to automatically adjust its speed to maintain a preset distance from the vehicle in front of it based on the driver's preferences. Individual drivers have different driving styles and preferences. Current systems do not distinguish among the users. We introduce a method to combine machine(More)

Traditionally, vehicles have been considered as machines that are controlled by humans for the purpose of transportation. A more modern view is to envision drivers and passengers as actively interacting with a complex automated system. Such interactive activity leads us to consider intelligent and advanced ways of interaction leading to cars that can adapt(More)

W ith the advance of automation and infotainment systems in vehicles, driving can be perceived as a comprehensive interactive activity occurring among human drivers and their vehicles. Classically, these users were considered the supervisors of the automated systems running in the cars. In the last decade, we have seen progress toward more autonomous(More)
