Shared steering control between a driver and an automation: stability in the presence of driver behaviour uncertainty

International audienceThis paper presents an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) for lane keeping, together with an analysis of its performance and stability with respect to variations in driver behavior. The automotive ADAS proposed is designed so as to share control of the steering wheel with the driver in the best possible way. Its development was derived from a H2-preview optimization control problem, which is based on the global driver-vehicle-road (DVR) system. The DVR model makes use of a cybernetic driver model so as to take into account any driver-vehicle interactions. Such a formulation allows to: i) consider driver-assistance cooperation criteria in the control synthesis, ii) improve the performance of the assistance as a cooperative copilot, and iii) analyze the stability of the whole system in the presence of driver model uncertainty. The results have been validated experimentally with one participant using a fixed-base driving simulator. The developed assistance system improved lane-keeping performance and reduced the risk of a lane departure accident. Good results were obtained using several criteria for human-machine cooperation. Poor stability situations were successfully avoided thanks to the robustness of the whole system in spite of a large range of driver model uncertainty
