A LOW SENSITIVITY MODERN APPROACH TO THE LONGITUDINAL CONTROL OF AUTOMATED TRANSIT VEHICLES

Modern control and estimation techniques are applied to the design of longitudinal controllers for automated transit vehicles. The sensitivity of dynamic response to changes in vehicle parameters and the effects of noisy sensors on control system performance are studied. A method for sensitivity reduction by augmentation of the state vector with the sensitivity vector is proposed and low sensitivity design is developed which provides excellent dynamic response over a wide range of operating conditions and vehicle parameters. /Author/
