METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CONTROLLING AUTONOMOUS DRIVING VEHICLE REENTERING AUTONOMOUS DRIVING MODE

By | September 14, 2018

When an ADV is detected to transition from a manual driving mode to an autonomous driving mode, a first pedal value corresponding to a speed of the ADV at a previous command cycle during which the ADV was operating in the manual driving mode is determined. A second pedal value is determined based on a target speed of the ADV at a current command cycle during which the ADV is operating in an autonomous driving mode. A pedal value represents a pedal percentage of a maximum pedal pressure or maximum pedal pressed distance of a throttle pedal or brake pedal from a neutral position. A speed command is generated and issued to the ADV based on the first pedal value and the second pedal value, such that the ADV runs in a similar acceleration before and after switching from the manual driving mode to the autonomous driving mode.
