Cruise Control Operation from Zero to Preset Speed-Simulation and Implementation

F. A. Arvind Raj R., S. B. Sandhiya Kumar, and T. C. Karthik S.

Abstract—Controlled & safe cruise control operation is one of the major constraints faced by today’s automotive industry. Adaptive cruise control (ACC) with Stop & Go scenarios is the most important research topics in the field of intelligent transportation systems. This paper deals with the development of an ACC controller supporting stop & go function. The main feature of this controller represents adaptation to a user-preset speed and, if necessary, speed reductions can be done to maintain a safe distance from the lead vehicle in the same lane on the road, irrespective of whatever speed it is moving. The extreme case is the stop and go operation in which the lead vehicle stops and the vehicle at the rear must also do so. The main concern of the system is about the inter-distance control in highways where the vehicle velocity mainly remains constant & it also deals with the vehicle circulating in towns with frequent stops & acceleration. In both situations, goals of safety and comfort are to be achieved. The main aim of the paper is to design a model for adaptive Cruise Control system which works efficiently under the STOP & Go scenarios using Matlab and validate it with physical design architecture incorporating safety features. The paper also deals with various lane changing strategies to enforce an overall control of the vehicle.

Index Terms—Adaptive Cruise Control, Stop & Go scenario, Zero speed, fail-safe features, Lane changing.
