Semi-autonomous vehicles

Abstract/Project Description

The objective of this project is to test the existing model predictive controller for vehicle safety in a realistic virtual environment. The first part of the project will involve helping set up the simulation platform, and the latter part will involve modifying the controller to account for more complex scenarios. Experiments with a passenger vehicle may be performed if time permits.
