Vehicle Longitudinal Control Using Discrete Markers

  title={Vehicle Longitudinal Control Using Discrete Markers},
  author={David Love and Masayoshi Tomizuka},
A hybrid observer is proposed as a method of estimating position and velocity of a vehicle when the primary input is a series of discrete magnetic markers placed along a roadway. For the preliminary studies, the vehicle was modeled as a pure inertial system with acceleration input. Two methods of determining the time tk at which the k-th marker is passed are discussed, and simulations using both methods are shown. Compensation for errors arising due to inaccurate measurement of this time is… CONTINUE READING
