Research

Efficient and highly precise longitudinal dynamics control for future driver assistance and automation systems

Fully automated driving results in new challenges that have to be mastered by the longitudinal motion control of vehicles. Situations that have not been considered so far, such as crossing of road bumps, depressions, and other road unevenesses, have to be managed reliably and precisely. A human driver is not available as fallback solution.
