The path used is the same as shown in Fig. 8. This controller was tested using both the actual and the discretized errors. 20) was inplemented using three different forms. The first form used the actual curvature of the path. The second used the φ estimation method. The last used the model estimator. These methods were described in detail in Chapter 4.
2 can be found as xy11 −y −x0 −(x1 −x0 ) slope of LINE 2 is y1 −y0 . 4) where m = x1 −x0 . y1 −y0 Next, the point (x2 , y2 ) must be determined by finding the intercept of LINE 2 and the path. 4) yields the following. Patricia Mellodge Chapter 5. 2: Errors of the path following vehicle. 9) Patricia Mellodge Chapter 5. 10) Now that the points (x1 , y1 ) and (x2 , y2 ) are known, the error is the difference between them. 11) Either the positive or negative square root is used depending on whether the path is to the left or right of the car’s center.
