8th International Modelica Conference, Dresden, Germany
Starting from an assumed vehicle path on a given road section we derive the formulae for the calculation of an appropriate reference speed profile tabled over road arc length. Together with a speed error feedback we thus emulate what a real driver does while driving and scheduling his actions on throttle and brake pedal. The resulting driver model may be used for automatic speed control in vehicle dynamics simulation. The application addressed here is software in the loop simulation for virtual drivetrain endurance testing at Daimler AG. A prototypical Modelica implementation was made at DLR and tested with a simple longitudinal vehicle dynamics model. Finally, we discuss the experiences with the reference speed profiles made in the industrial practice
