Abstract

The paper presents the design of cruise control systems considering road and traffic information during the design of speed trajectories. Several factors are considered such as road inclinations, traffic lights, preceding vehicles, speed limits, engine emissions and travel times. The purpose of speed design is to reduce longitudinal energy, fuel consumption and engine emissions without a significant increase in travel time. The signals obtained from the road and traffic are handled jointly with the dynamic equations of the vehicle and built into the control design of reference speed. A robust H∞ control is designed to achieve the speed of the cruise control, guaranteeing the robustness of the system against disturbances and uncertainties.
