Experimental Verification of Evasive Manoeuvre Assist Controller for Collision Mitigation with Oncoming Vehicles
Paper in proceedings, 2018
An evasive manoeuvre assist controller to mitigate the risk of collision with oncoming vehicles while performing evasive manoeuvres has previously been formulated and tested in simulation. In this work, a real-time application of this controller is implemented and used in experiments with a Volvo XC90 hybrid test vehicle. For comparison, manoeuvres are also carried out without the controller but with the driver adopting different speed control strategies. Analysis of the results show that the controller can consistently mitigate collision risk with the oncoming vehicle and while driver control of speed can perform better, it is far less robust and is heavily dependant on the driver skill and performance.
