Fuzzy-Based Velocity Control of the Automotive Cruising (Second Report)

Intuitions and experiences of the drivers are non-analytic and nonlinear. Thus, the traditional control theory can't be used to describe the driving characteristic. This paper presents an advanced control method in application of automotive cruising. A fuzzy logic controller (FLC) has been implemented and used to control the automotive velocity. The FLC can simulate the driver's behavior during driving. This FLC uses the target and the real velocity error and its rate as inputs and the throttle angle of the engine as an output. Simulation results show the fuzzy control is well suited for automotive velocity cruising control.
