Real-time Look-ahead Cruise Control Simulator
AbstractThe paper introduces a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) vehicle simulator built for testing and tuning a look-ahead cruise control algorithm considering forward road conditions. The aim of the vehicle simulator, apart from conducting real-time demonstrations and tests, is to create a HIL architecture which can be directly applied to a real heavy-duty vehicle formerly represented in TruckSim. By this means, several otherwise expensive road tests can be implemented with the simulator to increase the efficiency and reliability of the developed look-ahead control method.
