Low speed maneuvering assistance for long vehicle combinations
Paper i proceeding, 2013
This paper considers a low speed maneuvering problem for long articulated vehicle combinations. High precision maneuvering is achieved by designing a model-based state feedback optimal control method, commanding the steering of the first unit and a moveable coupling point between the first unit and the trailer. Simulation results are presented for a tight 90 degree turn, involving both forward and backward motions.
