AUTOMATIC GUIDANCE AND COLLISION AVOIDANCE FOR "SERPENTINE", A NOVEL CITY TRANSPORT SYSTEM

This paper describes the main components of a novel vehicle designed for the Serpentine project, a new urban transportation system which has as its goal to develop a fleet of autonomous electric vehicles that move independently or in queues. The paper first gives an overview of the Serpentine project. This is then followed by a discussion of the three primary components of the vehicle: 1) a new robust composite inductive sensor; 2) a "cinematic" controller; 3) and a collision avoidance system.
