Research Project

HVI for Primary Driving Control

Driving consists of a hierarchy of navigation, guidance, and control phases conducted simultaneously with visual search, recognition and monitoring operations. Control is the process of affecting the guidance desired by steering actuation, accelerator and brakes in such a way that the selected path is followed at the desired velocity, and with acceptable accuracy. To be able to predict and understand effects of different design solutions on vehicle performance, dynamic models of the vehicle is needed. As the vehicle and driver forms a closely coupled man-machine system, vehicle behaviour is not independent from driver actions. At the same time, driver behaviour is also influenced and superimposed by vehicle characteristics. As a consequence, driver attributes have to be included in the simulations in order to faciliate evaluation of new design features, improve safety and to make new cars more attractive to customers.

This project focused on studying the impact of varying driver’s driving skill on path tracking performance, and how to identify, quantify and model differences in driver behaviour in relation to driving skill. 

The work was carried out as a part of a collaborative project with General Motors, Saab Automobile, the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) and the Division of Vehicle Dynamics, KTH. Financial support to the project was given by VINNOVA (The Swedish Agency for Innovation Systems).
