    • Development of a Model-based Control Strategy for Autonomous Vehicle Collision Avoidance 

      MacCallum, Ben (University of Waterloo, 2022-09-29)
      Human inattention is the leading cause of traffic accidents in many regions around the world. Autonomous vehicle technologies are rapidly emerging with the aim to remove the human factor in key driving procedures, such as ...
    • Imitation Learning and Direct Perception for Autonomous Driving 

      Liang, Rocky (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-15)
      This thesis presents two learning based approaches to solve the autonomous driving problem: end-to-end imitation learning and direct visual perception. Imitation learning uses expert demonstrations to build a policy that ...
    • Multiple-Model Robust Adaptive Vehicle Motion Control 

      Zengin, Halit (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-28)
      An improvement in active safety control systems has become necessary to assist drivers in unfavorable driving conditions. In these conditions, the dynamic of the vehicle shows rather different respond to driver command. ...
    • A New Control Strategy for Coordinated Control of Ground Vehicle Vertical Dynamics via Control Allocation 

      Binder, Michael Karl (University of Waterloo, 2014-08-08)
      The scope of this thesis concerns the basic research and development of a coordinated control system for the control of vehicle roll and pitch dynamics using suspension forces as actuators. In this thesis, the following ...
    • Nonlinear Optimal Control of Automated Vehicles in a Connected Environment 

      Tan, Derrick (University of Waterloo, 2019-09-12)
      This thesis is based around the University of Waterloo EcoCAR Team (UWAFT) and the EcoCAR Mobility Challenge. The overall objective of the competition is to design and build a hybrid electric vehicle with SAE Level 2 ...
    • Reinforcement Learning of Dynamic Collaborative Driving 

      Ng, Luke (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-21)
      Dynamic Collaborative Driving is the concept of decentralized multi-vehicle automated driving where vehicles form dynamic local area networks within which information is shared to build a dynamic data representation of the ...
    • Stability Control of Electric Vehicles with In-wheel Motors 

      Jalali, Kiumars (University of Waterloo, 2010-06-17)
      Recently, mostly due to global warming concerns and high oil prices, electric vehicles have attracted a great deal of interest as an elegant solution to environmental and energy problems. In addition to the fact that ...
    • Study of Vehicle Dynamics with Planar Suspension Systems (PSS) 

      Zhu, Jian Jun (University of Waterloo, 2011-05-20)
      The suspension system of a vehicle is conventionally designed such that the spring-damper element is configured in the vertical direction, and the longitudinal connection between the vehicle chassis and wheels is always ...
