This paper addresses the issue of collision avoidance using lane-change maneuvers. Of particular interest is to determine the minimum distance beyond which an obstacle cannot be avoided at a given initial speed. Using a planar bicycle model, we first compute the sharpest dynamically feasible maneuver by minimizing the longitudinal distance of a lane transition, assuming given initial and free final speeds. The minimum distance to an obstacle is then determined from the path traced by the… 

Optimal Emergency Maneuvers Of Automated Vehicles

This work addresses two issues related to emergency maneuvers of autonomous vehicles. The first concerns the time-optimal speeds along specified path, which can be used to design emergency maneuvers.

Lane-deviation penalty formulation and analysis for autonomous vehicle avoidance maneuvers

Autonomous vehicles hold promise for increased vehicle and traffic safety, and there are several developments in the field where one example is an avoidance maneuver. There it is dangerous for the

Overtaking a Slower-Moving Vehicle by an Autonomous Vehicle

In the past few years there is much research on various aspects of control of autonomous vehicles. However, it seems that the problem of overtaking a slower-moving vehicle has been somewhat

From the Racetrack to the Road: Real-Time Trajectory Replanning for Autonomous Driving

A new scheme is presented that simultaneously modifies the desired path and speed profile for a vehicle in response to the appearance of an obstacle, significant tracking error, or other environmental change by formulating the trajectory optimization problem as a quadratically constrained quadratic program.

Collision avoidance maneuver for an autonomous vehicle

A method for designing and performing an emergency maneuver in order to avoid collision with a fixed or moving obstacle in the path, which does not have computational difficulties and is appropriate for real time implementations is presented.

Trajectory generation for road vehicle obstacle avoidance using convex optimization

Abstract This paper presents a method for trajectory generation using convex optimization to find a feasible, obstacle-free path for a road vehicle. Consideration of vehicle rotation is shown to be

It is shown that the absolute shape, size, and time of the first-phase trajectory do not depend on the velocity of the leading, slower moving vehicle, and the total time is bounded from above and below, regardless of the velocity.

Maneuver-Based Trajectory Planning for Highly Autonomous Vehicles on Real Road With Traffic and Driver Interaction

The design and first test on a simulator of a vehicle trajectory-planning algorithm that adapts to traffic on a lane-structured infrastructure such as highways, designed to run on a fail-safe embedded environment with low computational power to be implementable in commercial vehicles of the near future.

Collision avoidance analysis for lane changing and merging

The minimum longitudinal spacing which the vehicles involved in a lane changing/merging maneuver should initially have so that no collision, of any type, takes place during the maneuver.

The nonlinear velocity obstacle is introduced, which takes into account the shape, velocity and path curvature of the moving obstacle, which elevates the planning strategy to a second order method, compared to the first order avoidance using the linear v-obstacle.
