Physical Object: Vehicle OBE

Vehicle Control Automation

Overview

'Vehicle Control Automation' provides lateral and/or longitudinal control of a vehicle to allow 'hands off' and/or 'feet off' driving, automating the steering, accelerator, and brake control functions. It builds on the sensors included in 'Vehicle Safety Monitoring' and 'Vehicle Control Warning' and uses the information about the area surrounding the vehicle to safely control the vehicle. It covers the range of incremental control capabilities from driver assistance systems that take over steering or acceleration/deceleration in limited scenarios with direct monitoring by the driver to full automation where all aspects of driving are automated under all roadway and environmental conditions.

This functional object is included in the "Vehicle OBE" physical object.

This functional object is included in the following service packages:

Requirements

# Requirement
01 The vehicle shall monitor the area behind and in front of the vehicle to determine the proximity of other objects to the vehicle.
02 The vehicle shall monitor the area to the sides of the vehicle to determine the proximity of other objects to the vehicle to determine if a control adjustment is needed.
03 The vehicle shall evaluate the likelihood of a collision between two vehicles or a vehicle and a stationary object, based on the proximity of other objects to the vehicle and the current speed and direction of the vehicle.
04 The Vehicle shall provide its location with lane-level accuracy to on-board control automation applications.
05 The vehicle shall evaluate the likelihood of a collision between two vehicles or a vehicle and a stationary object, based on the proximity of other objects to the vehicle, roadway characteristics, and the current speed and direction of the vehicle.
06 The vehicle shall provide position control adjustments and warnings to the driver when an object gets close enough to the vehicle to become a hazard if no action is taken by the driver.
07 The vehicle shall provide an interface through which a vehicle driver can initiate, monitor and terminate automatic control of the vehicle.
08 The vehicle shall send appropriate control actions to the vehicle's steering actuators.
09 The vehicle shall present vehicle control information to the driver in audible or visual forms without impairing the driver's ability to control the vehicle in a safe manner.
10 The vehicle shall perform control actions based on information received from other vehicles regarding potentially hazardous road conditions or road hazards.
11 The vehicle shall perform pre-crash actions, including seatbelt tightening, brake assist, airbag pre-arming, bumper raising/extension.
12 The vehicle shall be capable of performing control actions based upon warnings received from nearby special vehicles.
13 The vehicle shall be capable of performing control actions based upon warnings received regarding pedestrians, cyclists, and other non-motorized users that are sharing the roadway with the vehicle
14 The vehicle shall be capable of performing control actions based upon information received from the infrastructure regarding the status of the intersection the vehicle is approaching.
15 The vehicle shall be capable of performing control actions based upon information received from other vehicles regarding their status approaching the intersection the vehicle is approaching.
16 The vehicle shall send appropriate control actions to the vehicle's speed control systems (e.g., throttle, brakes).

Standards

Currently, there are no standards associated with the functional object itself though the interfaces may have standards associated with them.
