Advantages of Friction Estimation in Collision Avoidance and Mitigation Calculations

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    This paper discusses how collision avoidance and collision mitigation by braking can utilize information about maximum coefficient of tyre-road friction. Requirements for friction information quality are discussed from the safety systems' point of view. Simulations are used to analyse the potential improvements in collision calculations with and without friction information. A sensor data fusion based on-board friction estimation system developed in EU project FRICTI@N is used as a basis when assessing the current capabilities to detect road slipperiness. Further, the effects of common estimation errors to collision calculations are discussed.
