    The overall approach to friction estimation in the FRICTI@N project is described. Road friction is an important parameter in vehicle control, limiting the applied steering, braking and acceleration of a vehicle. On-line and in-vehicle friction estimation is also a difficult task to be carried out in all driving situations and weather conditions. The paper describes the key friction terms, and previous work. Then the friction estimation architecture is explained, including data fusion algorithms for vehicle, environmental, and tyre based measurements, plus decision fusion. Also the inputs and outputs of the friction estimation system are listed, and demonstrator vehicles described. Finally the potential applications benefiting from more accurate friction information are discussed, and considerations for future research are presented..
