A throttle/brake control law for the intelligent cruise control(ICC) systems has been proposed in this paper. The ICC system consists of a vehicle detection sensor, the control algorithm and a throttle/brake actuators. For the control of a throttle/brake system, we introduced a solenoid-valve-controlled electronic vacuum booster and a step-motor controlled throttle actuator. Nonlinear computer model for the electronic vacuum booster has been developed and the simulations were per formed using a complete nonlinear vehicle model. The results indicate the proposed throttle/brake control law can provide the ICC system with an optimized performance.
