The paper presents a Fuzzy-based adaptive cruise control system with collision avoidance and collision warning (ACC/CA/CW). The proposed control scheme aims to improve driver's comfort while keeping him/her safe by avoiding possible collisions. Depending on inputs from both the driver and the installed sensors, the controller accelerates/decelerates the vehicle to keep its speed at the desired limit. In case of a possible collision, the controller decelerates (accelerates) the vehicle to prevent possible crash with the vehicle ahead (behind). Moreover, the controller issues visual and/or audio alerts for the driver in order to warn him/her in case of the need for applying an uncomfortable deceleration level and/or to warn the driver for risky situations where he/she might need to change the lane. Simulation results illustrate the robustness of the proposed system over various ranges of inputs.
