Abstract

The paper presents the design of a new adaptive cruise control method which takes into consideration the knowledge of the inclinations of the road and the velocity regulations along the route of the vehicle. By choosing the velocities of the vehicle that are the most suitable for the given road conditions, the number of unnecessary accelerations and brakings and their durations can be reduced. First a control-oriented model which contains the longitudinal control forces and disturbances is formalized. In the model the predicted road inclinations and velocity regulations are considered together with the safety requirements. Then the control system is designed by using the Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) control theory. The operation of the longitudinal controlled system and the influence of different designed parameters are also analyzed.
