With the introduction of autonomous vehicles on public roads, their performance in emergency situations has become a strong focus. Collision Imminent Control (CIC) concerns the planning and control of aggressive evasive maneuvers for collision avoidance of automated vehicles. CIC is implemented using adaptive Nonlinear Model Predictive Control ...

The burden of first-mile connection to public transit stations is a key barrier that discourages riders from taking public transportation. Public transit agencies typically operate a modest fleet of vehicles to provide first-mile services due to the high operating costs, thus failing to adequately meet the first-mile travel demands,...

This thesis introduces a novel model predictive controller (MPC) that integrates both torque vectoring and path following into one controller. Due to a need to improve vehicle safety, systems are being developed in order to improve vehicle handling. One system that is able to improve the vehicle handling is torque vectoring (TV). With torque...

The development of Fully Autonomous Vehicles would fundamentally change the nature of user interactions, behaviors, needs, and activities within vehicles. Passengers who are free from driving would expect to undertake diverse in-vehicle Non-Driving-Related Tasks (NDRTs) to keep themselves occupied and free from boredom. Conversational Artificial...

This work addresses visual localization of intelligent vehicles as an alternative to traditional GPS- of HD map-based localization options. Specifically, the problem of Cross-View Pose Estimation (CVPE) is explored, which involves estimating the vehicle pose within an encompassing aerial patch, given a ground image from the on-board camera feed....

With recent advancements in autonomous driving, the demand for precise and accurate perception systems has increased. Perception of the vehicle’s environment is a key element in ensuring safe operation. Due to their wide aperture angle and low cost, ultrasonic sensors are a viable option for achieving close-range 360° perception around the...

van der Drift, Victor (author)
This thesis presents a comprehensive approach to integrating a trajectory planner and follower for autonomous vehicles (AVs) using model predictive contouring control (MPCC). The planner generates collision-free trajectories with a kinematic bicycle model, while the follower tracks them using a dynamic bicycle model with a smaller integration...

Spartacusplan, the transportation plan for the Belgian province of Limburg from 2004, is now turned into the most extensive and ambitious bus rapid transit (BRT) project in Europe. However, the proposed vehicles and network do not correspond well to the region’s highly dispersed, poly-centric structure. Moreover, the dispersed urbanisation...

Autonomous vehicles are becoming increasingly prevalent in society, but the transition from active driver to passive passenger is known to increase the risk and severity of motion sickness. Motion anticipation is a critical factor in this difference, and visual information is known to be a major contributor to motion anticipation. However, the...

Critical to the safe application of autonomous vehicles is the ability to accurately predict the future motion of agents surrounding the vehicle. This is especially important - and challenging - in urban traffic, where vehicles share the road with Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) such as pedestrians and cyclists. However, the majority of the...

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) can solve a lot of problems related to traffic safety, comfort and congestion. While the sensors used by these vehicles are getting cheaper, more accurate, and software is improving, the first completely automated vehicle does not exist yet. When AVs start gradually driving on the roads, there will be a mixed traffic...

With the imminent rise of vehicle automation the human driver will have increasingly less responsibility for driving. At one point this will even mean that cars will be able to fully drive themselves, so that the driver is relieved of all driving related tasks. In this situation the car effectively becomes a robot, resulting in a novel...
