Title
(EN) ADAPTIVE BRAKING AND DIRECTIONAL CONTROL SYSTEM (ABADCS)
(FR) SYSTÈME ADAPTATIF DE FREINAGE ET DE COMMANDE DIRECTIONNELLE (ABADCS)
Abstract
(EN)
A method of controlling and optimizing braking and directional control of a vehicle operated on a contaminated, compliant, or non-compliant surface. The method includes steps of: collecting data from a plurality of sensors, the data being indicative of a condition of the contaminated, compliant, or non-compliant surface; sending the data to a neural controller having an algorithm configured to process the data. The algorithm includes: determining optimum braking and directional control instructions for the vehicle, generating warnings and alerts based on the calculated optimum braking and directional control instructions, and sending the optimum braking and directional control instructions to a braking and steering system of the vehicle and the warnings and alerts to an alert and warning system of the vehicle. The method further includes adjusting the steering and directional control of the braking and steering system in accordance with the optimum braking and directional control instructions provided by the neural controller.

L'invention concerne un procédé de commande et d'optimisation du freinage et de la commande directionnelle d'un véhicule conduit sur une surface contaminée, accommodante ou non accommodante. Le procédé comprend les étapes suivantes : collecte de données provenant d'une pluralité de capteurs, les données indiquant un état de la surface contaminée, accommodante ou non accommodante ; envoi des données à un contrôleur neuronal ayant un algorithme configuré pour traiter les données. L'algorithme comprend les étapes suivantes : détermination d'instructions de freinage et de commande directionnelle optimales pour le véhicule, génération d'avertissements et d'alertes sur la base des instructions de freinage et de commande directionnelle optimales calculées, et envoi des instructions de freinage et de commande directionnelle optimales à un système de freinage et de direction du véhicule et des avertissements et alertes à un système d'alerte et d'avertissement du véhicule. Le procédé comprend en outre l'ajustement de la commande de direction et directionnelle du système de freinage et de direction en fonction des instructions de freinage et de commande directionnelle optimales fournies par le contrôleur neuronal.
