Virtual reality platform design & development for intelligent vehicles control

Abstract : This thesis is dedicated to the interdisciplinary area of Intelligent Transportation Systems and Virtual Reality technologies. It focuses on the improvement of intelligent vehicles control strategies by considering the natural environment impacts as well as the visualization, the verification and performance analysis of proposed control algorithms on the proposed Intelligent Vehicles Virtual Reality (IVVR) platform.The IVVR platform includes three subsystems: Vehicle Intelligent Control Subsystem, Visualization Subsystem and Virtual Wireless Subsystem. For realizing the control strategy simulation and performance analysis under complex natural environment conditions, Synthetic Natural Environment has been modeled and simulated in this IVVR platform. Therefore, experiments of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) or Cooperative ACC system equipped traffic are executed and show that normal ACC/CACC system fails to keep a safe inter-vehicle space when the natural environment condition is variable or adverse especially in stiff conditions. For solving this problem, we propose a new control algorithm called NECACC (Natural Environment based CACC) for longitudinal vehicle control in maintaining a safe inter-vehicle distance as well as guaranteeing an appropriate traffic capacity even under complex environmental conditions. This algorithm is then simulated and verified in IVVR platform as a “proof of concept”. Finally, some virtual traffic demonstrations performing common traffic maneuvers are presented in IVVR platform under various environmental conditions. The vehicle platoon is controlled by proposed integrated control system and the safety can be ensured all the time
