Autonomous Ground Vehicles
Ümit Özgüner, Tankut Acarman and Keith Redmill
In the near future, we will be experience vehicles with the ability to provide drivers with many advanced safety and performance assistance features. Autonomous technology applied to ground vehicles will provide capabilities such as intersection collision warning, safe lane change and merge warning and assistance, lane departure warning and correction, parking assistance, and active advanced cruise control and forward collision avoidance. Fully autonomous vehicles are likely to follow with capabilities for route planning, self-driving, and safely interacting with other vehicles and complex traffic scenarios.
This innovative resource focuses on providing professionals with a practical understanding of the relevant technologies in this area, including presenting the basic autonomous control and feedback techniques for vehicle velocity control and car following, steering and lane following, obstacle avoidance, lane change, and parking operations.
Covering the sensors, estimation and sensor fusion technologies necessary to perceive the vehicle motion and external objects, this book explains the key aspects that make autonomous vehicle behavior possible. Practitioners will find detailed examples of data fusion and Kalman filtering. From maps, path planning, and obstacle avoidance scenarios to cooperative mobility among autonomous vehicles, vehicleto-vehicle communication, and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, this book presents the most critical topics in the field today.
