Evaluation of an Evasive Manoeuvre Assistance System at Imminent Side Collisions
Paper i proceeding, 2016

In this paper, the performance of an Evasive Manoeuvre Assistance System is evaluated on the test track, where an imminent half-overlapping side collision scenario is reconstructed. The control function here aims to reduce the steering effort for an emergency swerve in front of obstacle and to ease the following recovery into the driver perceived safe zone. This is realized by combined differential braking and steering torque overlay, which improves the agreement between steering input and vehicle response. Preliminary test results have shown that the function has a great potential to reduce collision risk at the presence of suddenly appeared obstacle in front.
