Title:
ACTIVE STEERING SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING VEHICLE TRAVELING
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2015/133132
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The present teachings provide for an active steering system for controlling a vehicle (10). The system can include at least one sensor (50) and a control module (58). The at least one sensor can be configured to detect a leading obstacle (226). The control module can be configured to receive a signal from the at least one sensor, to determine a steering profile (286), and to execute a lane change maneuver based on the steering profile. The steering profile can include a plurality of steering angles (110) and corresponding vehicle positions for maneuvering the vehicle from a current lane (218) to an adjacent lane (222). The steering angles can be calculated to not increase the acceleration of the vehicle above an occupant comfort threshold value and to not cause the vehicle to cross an outer boundary (262) of the adjacent lane.
