Autonomous Systems: Actuation

Our Driverless Vehicle, M19-D, needs a way of reacting to the requests sent by the motion control algorithm. Without a driver in the car, we rely on an electric motor to control the steering system, as well as a pneumatically powered linear actuator for the brakes.

M19-D’s steering system is controlled by a servo motor […]

Autonomous Systems: Motion Control

Once we have decided on a path to follow, we need to determine how to control our car’s acceleration and steering to navigate the desired path. To do this, we use model predictive control (MPC).

MPC works by solving for a sequence of controls over a period of time into the future called the ‘prediction […]
