An increasing number of tasks is being taken over from the human driver as automated driving technology is developed. Accidents have been reported in situations where the automated driving technology was not able to function according to specifications. As data-driven Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are becoming more ubiquitous in automated...

This study focuses on network configurations to accommodate automated vehicles (AVs) on road networks during the transition period to full automation. The literature suggests that dedicated infrastructure for AVs and enhanced infrastructure for mixed traffic (i.e., AVs on the same lanes with conventional vehicles) are the main alternatives so...

More and more Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADASs) are entering the market for improving both safety and comfort. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is an ADAS application that has high interaction with the driver. ACC systems use limited sensor input and have only few configuration possibilities. This may result in the behaviour of the ACC not...

Proponents of autonomous driving pursue driverless technologies, whereas others foresee a gradual transition where there will be automated driving systems that share the control of the vehicle with the driver. With such advances it becomes pertinent that the developed automated systems need to be safe. One crucial aspect of safety is to prove...

In this paper, in addition to the main functionality of vehicle following, cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) is enabled with additional features of gap closing and collision avoidance. Due to its nonlinear nature, a control objective such as collision avoidance, cannot be addressed using a linear controller such as a PD controller....

This paper presents the controller design for combined lateral and longitudinal Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) for a unicycle-type platoon with emphasis on the cornering maneuvers. A decentralized controller for lateral and longitudinal behavior is designed using input-output linearization by static feedback. A preceding vehicle look...

Safety of automotive systems is becoming more involved, specially for the case of autonomous vehicles. The ISO 26262 standard offers a systematic approach for designing a safe road vehicle (or subsystems of a car) from design phase through its production. However, providing functional safety (according to ISO 26262) for an existing system is a...

Advanced driving simulators aim at rendering the motion of a vehicle with maximum fidelity, which requires increased mechanical travel, size, and cost of the system. Motion cueing algorithms reduce the motion envelope by taking advantage of limitations in human motion perception, and the most commonly employed method is just to scale down the...

In 2013 or early 2014 the European Union will decide upon a new “Regulation on the sound level of motor vehicles”. It will specify a new type approval test method for noise emission and will give revised limit values for the permissible noise emission per vehicle (sub- category. The new regulation may be seen as a final stage of a long series of...

This paper describes the results of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) experiments implementing cooperative maneuvering for three different vehicles driving automatically. The cars used were cybercars from the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique (INRIA), (France), which are fully automated road...

The next generation off-road vehicles will see additional exhaust gas aftertreatment systems, ranging from DOC-SCR only to full DOC-DPF-SCR-AMOX systems. This will increase system complexity and development effort significantly. Emission requirements and the high number of vehicle configurations within the off-road industry will require a new...

The design of a cooperative adaptive cruise-control (CACC) system and its practical validation are presented. Focusing on the feasibility of implementation, a decentralized controller design with a limited communication structure is proposed (in this case, a wireless communication link with the nearest preceding vehicle only). A necessary and...

In order to support the development process of Advanced Driver Assistance systems for road vehicles, TNO is operating a hardware-in-the-loop test setup. In this facility, called VeHIL, vehicles in the direct neighborhood of the test vehicle are simulated using wheeled mobile robots. Due to the required type of maneuvers, these robots have...

Local habitability is coming under increasing pressure from harmful traffic emissions. This emission is strongly correlated to the characteristics and dynamics of traffic: type of vehicle, speed, acceleration and deceleration. This paper investigates the use of integrated road-vehicle systems for environmental objectives. It defines a new...

Autonomous robot vehicles that operate in offroad terrain should avoid obstacle hazards. In this paper we present a stereo vision based method that is able to cluster reconstructed terrain points into obstacles by evaluating their relative angles and distances. In our approach, constraints are enforced on these geometric properties by a set of...

Simulation, or rather virtual testing, is a good instrument for study and design of traffic management concepts, traffic safety, vehicle safety and ergonomics. Simulation facilitates the evaluation of the design at an early stage and reduces the costs of making prototypes. The Dutch research organization TNO, recently started a new initiative...

Although interest in particulate emissions has increased considerably during recent years, the subject of particulate matter (PM) emissions from small two-stroke engines used in road vehicles is still largely unexplored. This paper presents the results of an investigation, which examined the typical emission level and the typical characteristics...

This report studies the large scale application of biofuels in roadvehicles in the Netherlands. As a result of the large emission of CO2 from road traffic and the lack of prospects for substantial reduction as long as energy demand is still increasing and fossil fuels are mainly used to meet this demand, a substitute for conventional gasoline en...
