A Study of Lane Keeping Assistance by Steering Control Based on Muscular Activity

This study investigates an ideal steering control using information around a vehicle. The target system of this paper is a Lane Keeping Assistance System (LKAS) It controls an electric power steering guide drivers' steering operations to keep the lane observed by an on-board camera. LKAS performance was evaluated in terms of steering stability including the ease of steering by analyzing electromyograms of driver's arms. The result showed that a good steering assistance reduces synchronous contractions of symmetrical muscles of arms, and decreases the action of the agonists without increasing the use of the antagonists. Based on the result, a new steering control logic that modifies the viscous property of the steering rotation was developed, which improved of steering smoothness and stability requiring less force.
