Reduction of energy consumption by improving the vehicle movement style is a key topic nowadays. There are several assistance systems in order to provide energy-efficient vehicle motion, while one of these assistance system is cruise control. The cruise control system reconfigures the steady velocity of the vehicle by setting the longitudinal control forces automatically. But, the general adaptive cruise control system considers just the instantaneous effect of the road conditions since it doesn’t have information about oncoming road conditions and sections. For the integrated adaptive semi-active suspension and velocity control system, oncoming road conditions are significant and need to be considered.
This project covers the adaptive look-ahead cruise controller, that can be integrated into the vertical motion contorl.
