Pp. 193-197 (5)

An automatic steering system for a self-guided vehicle must be able to track its course smoothly and accurately. In order to meet this requirement, a predictive controller has been implemented in the Verdino prototype. In this chapter the principles behind this kind of controller, as well as the details of the actual implementation, are presented.
