A study of a headway distance control system at low speeds

Generally, the headway distance is short and a preceding vehicle's speed changes frequently in low-speed driving. These factors make it difficult to design a headway distance controller that would satisfy the target following characteristics at a low speed using the same control procedure as that of the high-speed range. A comparison of the characteristics of the driver's low- and high-speed driving operations has made it possible to achieve natural headway distance control even at low speeds.
