Final Report B0005

In this project we have experimentally evaluated our method for motion planning and control at the limits of handling, under locally varying traction conditions.
The experiments were performed on a on a Volvo FH16 heavy-duty vehicle, in a range of critical scenarios. Results indicate that traction adaptive motion planning and control improves the vehicle’s capacity to avoid accidents, both when adapting to low and high local traction.
