Extension and Experimental Validation of Fuel Efficient Predictive Adaptive Cruise Control

2015 American Control Conference (ACC)
Advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS) like
adaptive cruise control (ACC) are primarily developed to
increase safety and driving comfort and nowadays applied
to upper class production vehicles. Additional benefits like
improvement of fuel economy is a widespread field in research.
In this paper a fuel efficient predictive adaptive cruise control
(PACC) approach is performed experimentally with a test
vehicle. To this end, a model to predict the predecessor?s
prospective velocity is introduced which allows anticipatory
driving. An online model predictive controller (MPC) calculates
the desired acceleration of the following vehicle such that fuel
consumption is minimized while keeping constraints to the
inter-vehicle distance as well as minimum and maximum vehicle
speed and acceleration. Experimental results on a road and in
HIL tests show a significant benefit in fuel economy as well as
in reduction of NOx and particulate matter emissions of the
controlled vehicle compared to its predecessor.
