Abstract

To reduce the number of road departure accidents caused by fatigue and driver inattention, intervention strategies were investigated during critical situations as part of a human-centered approach to lateral vehicle control. A system was designed and integrated which monitors the vehicle/driver's behavior noninvasively and takes over control if and when the driver does not react appropriately. A preview based controller implemented on a Navistar 9400 series tractor-trailer comprised of a `pursuit' algorithm which steers the vehicle towards goal points on the road, stored in the form of a digital map. A Novatel RT-20 second generation DGPS system is the primary sensor modality for providing feedback of the vehicle's position and orientation.
