The concept of the ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) system is shown in Fig. 1. ACC system controls the throttle valve and the brake master cylinder to maintain a desired space between the preceding vehicle and the ACC vehicle. To evaluate performance of the ACC system and driver’s responses to the intelligent vehicles, a vehicle simulator with a virtual reality feature can be a very effective tool. For such a vehicle simulator, a real-time vehicle dynamics and control model is essential.
