Abstract

This project aims to implement an autonomous system that combines adaptive cruise control (ACC), trajectory generation, trajectory tracking controller and half-toroidal continuously variable transmission (CVT) on a radio control car. The results show that the car can track trajectories, drive smoothly at desired speed, and keep a safe distance from the front car and has a wider range of speed and smoother acceleration. With the success of this project, students interested in control theories or related areas will be able to take the project further.
