A model predictive control approach to design a parameterized adaptive cruise control
van de Molengraft, M.J.G.
The combination of different desirable characteristics and situation-dependent behavior cause the design of adaptive cruise control (ACC) systems to be time consuming and tedious. This chapter presents a systematic approach for the design and tuning of an ACC, based on model predictive control (MPC). A unique feature of the synthesized ACC is its parameterization in terms of the key characteristics safety, comfort and fuel economy. This makes it easy and intuitive to tune, even for nonexperts in (MPC) control, such as the driver. The effectiveness of the design approach is demonstrated using simulations for some relevant traffic scenarios. © 2010 Springer-Verlag London.
