AUTONOMOUS INTELLIGENT CRUISE CONTROL USING SCANNING LASER SENSOR

Autonomous intelligent cruise control system is now available in the market place. Conventional cruise control system can maintain a preset vehicle speed thus improving the comfort for the driver during steady driving condition. But the ability to maintain a fixed speed is of limited use when traffic conditions are complex and confused. Autonomous Intelligent Cruise Control (AICC) systems use electronically controlled vehicle speed control parts (Electronic throttle valve system, Electronic brake system) and distance sensors to adapt automatically to the traffic flow. In this paper, the developed AICC system is addressed. The AICC system has the electronically controlled throttle valve and brake system. To detect the obstacle vehicle, a scanning laser sensor is used as a distance sensor. The AICC research project is supported by DAEWOO Motor Corporation. For the covering abstract see IRRD E102946.
