3 Figure 1: A bicycle model vehicle with heading ψ and front wheel heading ψ + δ is shown in the global coordinate frame X-Y and in relation to a straight section of roadway S. Due to interaction between the front wheels and the road, a torque σ sa, called the self-aligning torque, acts on the steering linkage and tends to drive the steering angle δ to zero: σ sa = A k uδ. (4) Although the proportionality constant A k is also a function of vehicle parameters for a full tire/vehicle model, we will simplify the model by using a constant A k. The self-aligning torque should be reflected back to the haptic wheel so you can feel the steering forces. Remember that there is a gear ratio R that scales torques between the steering wheel and the front wheels. For the ACC system, we will need to calculate the component of the vehicle velocity in the forward direction of road, which we define as u s. To do this, we define unit vectors U f and U r that are tangent and normal to the road centerline S at P. The positive sense of U f and U r corresponds to a forward and a right direction, respectively. The velocity of the vehicle projected onto U f gives u s : 5 Road Geometry u s = u cos(ψ + δ), sin(ψ + δ) U f (5) The road consists of 16 straight segments and 15 left and right curving segments of constant curvature κ = m 1 and varying length. Thirty solid orange cylinders of diameter 1.4 m are located at various points in the center of the road to act as obstacles. The separation between cylinders varies according to a uniform random distribution between 20 and 80 meters. Figure 2 shows a top view of the roadway and the obstacles. The roadway length is 1993 m. The road geometry is compiled into a target ELF file by placing path data.c and path data.h in the directory next to the model. During the build process, the roadway coordinate transform blocks instruct Real Time Workshop to include these two files in the compilation. Special Simulink s-function blocks provide access to the road geometry. Specifically, given an s-coordinate, which is the path length along the center of the road, there is a block that returns the (x, y) coordinates on the centerline of the road, a block that returns the curvature, and two other blocks that return unit vectors in the forward and the right directions, U f and U r. These blocks can be found in U of M blockset for MPC5500/Vehicle Simulator. 3

The coordinates (x, y) are with respect to the global coordinate system X-Y. Integration of the vehicle position is performed in global coordinates. It is more convenient to order the vehicles based on the distance they have travelled down the center of the road. Let P denote a point on the center of the road, and define (s, n) coordinates, where s is the distance travelled down the center of the road to P and n is the lateral displacement to the right of P. Then the s coordinate can be used to determine the distance between vehicles measured along the centerline. The vehicle center C can be transformed from (s, n) to (x, y) coordinates easily with the road geometry blocks described in Section 5. Point P and U r can be found from s using the blocks, and then C is P + nu r. The other transformation, from (x, y) to (s, n), is challenging. Rather than using a closed form solution, a feedback-stabilized closest point algorithm is used to find s such that C is to the right or left of P without being ahead or behind. Then n is the distance in the U r direction from C to P. The two coordinate transformations have been provided as blocks to you. Be aware that the (x, y) to (s, n) transformation is not exact and relies on an initial estimate of s that must be close to the actual s coordinate. Figure 3 shows the feedback-stabilized algorithm described and points out the integrator with the initial estimate of s. 7 CAN Communication In an actual ACC system, radar would be used to measure relative location and velocity of traffic in front of the vehicle. In this lab, we will replace radar information with communication between vehicle models by using the CAN network. Each computer on the CAN network will periodically transmit 4 values (32-bits each) onto the network. The ACC systems need the speed along the centerline u s (see Section 4) and the s-coordinate of all the other vehicles. The graphics software needs x, y and ψ for each vehicle, where x and y can be found from s and n. To provide these values s, n, u s, and ψ, each lab station must transmit 2 64-bit Messages (with two 32-bit values per message). Also, the format of these messages must be standard so that everyone can understand each others messages, so the following format must be used. Message 1, Bytes 1-4: s as a float Message 1, Bytes 5-8: n as a float Message 2, Bytes 1-4: u s as a float Message 2, Bytes 5-8: ψ as a float in radians 4

5 Initial condition of the integrator is an initial guess for s. Figure 3: The diagram shown converts (x, y) coordinates to (s, n) coordinates. To form the CAN messages, use the Single-to-Bytes block to create two 4-byte arrays and then mux them into the port data of the CAN transmit block. When receiving CAN messages, they can be unpacked by an inverse operation. The data can be demuxed into an array of 8-bytes and then the upper and lower bytes are muxed into 4-byte arrays and passed to the Bytes-to-Single block to reconstruct the floating-point value. 8 Manual Control If the ACC system is disabled, the vehicle responds to pedal inputs from the potentiometer. The potentiometer determines the driving force F d. You will need to determine an appropriate scaling and offset for the QADC output (which is in the range [0, ]) to the range of forces you want. Consider allowing negative forces since you do not have a brake. 9 Adaptive Cruise Control Design There are three modes of operation for the ACC system. If the system is deactivated, then the vehicle is under manual control, with the potentiometer functioning as a gas pedal. When ACC is turned on, there are two modes of operation: there is a speed control mode that maintains the vehicle at the desired velocity unless another vehicle is too close, in which case a position control mode is implemented that keeps the vehicle a fixed distance from the car immediately in front. The ACC system is actually two controllers with some logic that selects one of the two controllers or selects manual control if the system is deactivated. The switching logic needs to know the s coordinate of the lead vehicle, so you must create a subsystem that takes the s coordinates from all the other vehicles, compares them against your own s-coordinate, and selects the lead vehicle if one exists. If there is no lead vehicle, then the switching logic activates the speed control block. Let subscript i denote the lead vehicle. Then given a lead vehicle s-coordinate s i and your own s-coordinate s and the speeds u si and u s, a simple switching logic can be defined by { Position Control for u si u s AND s i s H Mode = (6) Velocity Control for u si > u s OR s i s > H 5

6 IDs 1 & 2 IDs 3 & 4 IDs 5 & 6 IDs 7 & 8 Printer Msg 11 & 12 IDs 9 & 10 Figure 4: Each lab station should transmit CAN messages with the IDs as given above. where H is the safe gap distance. This switching logic may tend to introduce oscillations between modes, so it may be useful to use additional logic to prevent switching out of position control mode until the value of (u si u s ) exceeds a small positive amount (consider why). The ACC enables either position or speed control if activated, or manual control otherwise. In Simulink this is accomplished by using either a Stateflow diagram or an enabled subsystem, which only runs if the enable signal is 1. The three possible subsystems all produce a force F d to drive the vehicle s front wheel. Use a Simulink merge block to select the output of the one enabled subsystem. Lastly, we want to consider the situation in which one of the car s system sensors fails. For a real car using an ACC controller this may be the infrared camera used to determine the following distance of the car in front of it, or the other sensors used to monitor wheel speed etc. For this task, we will introduce one sensor who s probability of failure is 1 percent, and second, adapt our ACC controller to handle the situation when the sensor fails. Specifically, when the sensor fails, we want our ACC controller to only select manual mode. Only when the sensor has been repaired, by toggling a dipswitch, should the ACC then be able to again select from all three operating modes. 10 Graphics Software We are providing you with a program that displays a roadway from the view point of your simulated vehicle and will display the five other vehicles on the road. A screen shot is shown in Figure 5. The program can be run on the Windows lab stations and it communicates with your vehicle model through the serial port. It expects an array of eighteen float (32-bit floating point) numbers preceded by the character s and terminated with the character e. The array of floating-point values, in order, are: x, y, ψ, x 1, y 1, ψ 1, x 2, y 2, ψ 2, x 3, y 3, ψ 3, x 4, y 4, ψ 4, x 5, y 5, and ψ 5. Once you have connected the graphics program to the serial port, it will display the roadway from the location (x,y) looking in the direction ψ with the most recent values that it reads through the serial port. The program is set to read COM1 at a speed of baud. Initial conditions, x 0 = 0, y 0 = 0, and ψ 0 = 0 will start the vehicle simulation in the middle of the road and facing forward. Because the serial port transfers data slowly in comparison to the rest of the model, sending of the data should be performed in a separate task. You should use the Resource Allocation blocks to transfer the 18 values from the main model task to the a task dedicated to transmitting those values through the serial port. 6

7 Figure 5: Screen shot of the graphics software. The first toolbar button connects the program to COM1. The second button forms a simulation connection and you can steer with the mouse while pressing the left mouse button. The third button disconnects from the active connection. You can log all the data read from the serial port to a log file by selecting the logging menu option. A text file will be created, in which each line of the file contains a time stamp from the PC and the eighteen values read, in order. You can read this log file into Matlab for analysis and plotting. 11 Prelab 1. Before coming to lab, make a block diagram showing the inputs and outputs of both the ACC and car model. Be sure to include, as inputs, any information these systems need to make decisions. Show how the blocks connect. 2. Before coming to lab, make a state transition diagram of the ACC controller mode. Recall that the three modes are Position control, Velocity control, and Manual control. 7
