Vehicle technology
The development of vehicle technologies toward Level 4+ autonomous driving imposes several new and demanding requirements on the vehicle motion control. Among those, the most important, and also the most challenging requirement is to guarantee a maximum total deviation from the desired trajectory/path. While the existing vehicle motion controllers use the driver as a failsafe fall-back, in high-level autonomous driving, path deviation must be guaranteed to satisfy an Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) requirement. Hence, the ASIL D requirement to stay within the lane will reflect into a stringent requirement on the maximum total deviation from the desired trajectory/path (performance and safety guarantees), compatibly with the sensing technology.

Vehicle motion control with performance and safety guarantees

The goal of this project is to develop a vehicle motion control design framework with performance and safety guarantees by using advanced control methods such as model predictive control, optimal control. Our primary objective is to harness advanced control design and analysis methods to enable performance and safety guarantees without a simultaneous dramatic increase of the verification problem.
