Congress: Improving the performance of a control system for intelligent vehicle path tracking

Event: FISITA World Congress 14-16 September 2021 online

Name: Yan Wu, Associate Professor

Company: Chinese Academy of Sciences

Presentation Title: F2020-VDC-016 Intelligent Vehicle Path Tracking Control Based on Sliding Mode Predictive Control

Please introduce yourself briefly…

I received the Ph.D. degree in power electronics and electric drives from the Institute of Electrical Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China, in 2019. I am currently as an Associate Professor with the Department of Vehicle Energy System and Control Technology, Institute of Electrical Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences. My research interests include ADAS, Vehicle motion control, in-vehicle network applications, and X-by-wire systems.

What you will talk about at this year’s FISITA World Congress?

I will introduce a robust intelligent vehicle path tracking control strategy based on sliding mode predictive control (SMPC), which effectively improves the dynamic performance and robustness of control system.

What benefits will participants gain from your presentation?

The participants can learn the design ideas and implementation methods of the entire control strategy. This control method can also be applied to other control systems that require strong robustness.

Which trends do you consider as the most important for your domain of research and your geographical region and what challenges and opportunities do these present?

I think the high-precision control of vehicle trajectory tracking at extreme conditions will be the difficulties and challenges of future vehicle motion control research.

This trend is provided to our opportunities include: Accurate vehicle status estimation method, and the coordination control method of the vehicle steering system and brake system under extreme driving conditions.

About the FISITA World Congress

Since 1947, the FISITA World Congress has been the leading international meeting place for industry experts, engineers and executives to exchange ideas and discuss the trends that drive the automotive industry forward. The theme for the 38th FISITA World Congress is 'From automobile to mobility. New roles. New challenges' and it will take place 14-16 September 2021, with the opportunity for the global audience to join virtually available for the first time. Registration is now open, with the Early Bird and special registration rates available until 31 August 2021.

Content from the 2020 FISITA Web Congress is available within the FISITA Technical Library, while material from previous Congress events back to 1998 is available in the FISITA Store. By the time of this year’s Congress, all the content will be available within the FISITA Technical Library, with free access provided to FISITA members.
