Lateral Control of Heavy Duty Vehicles for Automated Highway Systems

This report presents a linear analysis of a tractor semitrailer model. The analysis is followed by the design of a simple linear controller for lane following. Offtracking analysis is presented for a single unit vehicle and tractor semitrailer. This analysis is independent of the control design. Modeling of multi-unit articulated vehicles is also presented. Both a complex simulation model and a simplified control design model are derived for a general road train.
