      Modeling and control design for a computer-controlled brake system 

      Raza, H.; Xu, Z.; Yang, B.; Ioannou, Petros A. (1997)
      The brake subsystem is one of the most significant parts of a vehicle with respect to safety. A computer-controlled brake system has the capability of acting faster than the human driver during emergencies, and therefore ...

      Roadway traffic controller design for automated highway systems 

      Chien, C. C.; Zhang, Y.; Stotsky, A.; Ioannou, Petros A. (IEEE, 1994)
      For manual driving, the traffic flow is often irregular, unstable leading to congestion and to low traffic flow rate during minor incidents. These irregularities are due to variation of vehicle speeds and headways that are ...

      Traffic Density Control for Automated Highway Systems 

      Chien, C. -C; Zhang, Y.; Ioannou, Petros A. (1997)
      Traffic flow instabilities such as traffic congestion are often caused by ad hoc and inappropriate speeds and headways that humans choose when they operate their vehicles. In an automated highway system (AHS) environment, ...
