Active Steering Force Feedback for Commercial Heavy Vehicles

Research Motivating Problem: To meet the traffic safety goals for 2020 with safe commercial heavy vehicles, future active steering systems introduced in such vehicles must provide an intuitive and informative steering force feedback to the driver about the vehicle combination’s stability envelope, blended with safe driving in traffic by guidance in lane, obstacle avoidance, and during automated emergency braking. Envisioned product/solution: Novel functionality Research questions: Hypothesis: informative but not limiting constraints are preferred for steering force feedback for commercial heavy vehicles. Deliverables: Verification and demonstration of the Novel functionality Competence captured in publications, inventions/patents and theses and in one person 1 VehDyn PhD graduated
