Modern control and estimation techniques are applied to the design of longitudim controllers for automated transit vehicles. The sensitivity of dynamic response t changes in vehicle parameters and the effects of noisy sensors on control system per formance are studied. A method for sensitivity reduction by augmentation of the stat vector with the sensitivity vector is proposed and low sensitivity design is developea which provides excellent dynamic response over a wide range of operating conditions and vehicle parameters.
