Complete Combination Vehicle Control, C2VC
Research Project , 2017 – 2018

Research Motivating Problem: Long combination vehicles are efficient on the large roads, but limited on bridges, tight curves and terminals. Also, the vehicle control is not optimized for each different set of towed units.

Envisioned outcome: A vehicle control which reconfigures when the set of towed units are changed.

Research questions:

•How should a reconfigurable Vehicle Motion Function Architecture look?
•How can Vehicle Motion Control be generalized/parameterized so that it
can handle various set of towed units?


Deliverables:

•Sharing a Vehicle Motion Function Architecture by academic publications.
•Demonstration in simulation.
•Demonstration in real A-double which configures automatically to Tractor-Semi and Dolly-Semi (using a propelled dolly.)
•Knowledge sharing between industry and academy
