An Investigation of Optimal Vehicle Maneuvers for Different Road Conditions

Abstract
We investigate optimal maneuvers for vehicles on different road surfaces such as asphalt, snow, and ice. This study is motivated by the desire to find control strategies for improved future vehicle safety and driver assistance technologies. Based on earlier presented empirical measurements for tire-force characteristics, we develop vehicle and tire models corresponding to different road conditions and determine the time-optimal maneuver in a hairpin turn for each of these. The results obtained are discussed and compared for the different road characteristics. Our main finding is that there are fundamental differences between how the vehicle should perform the maneuver on different surfaces. This implies that there are vehicle behaviors... (More)

The results obtained are discussed and compared for the different road characteristics. Our main finding is that there are fundamental differences between how the vehicle should perform the maneuver on different surfaces. This implies that there are vehicle behaviors observed in these results, which can be utilized for developing the vehicle safety systems of tomorrow. (Less)
