A dynamic model predictive control method for driving robots is proposed to realize accurate steering control of the test vehicle. First, the coupling dynamics model of the driving robot and the controlled vehicle is established, and the controllability of the coupling model is judged. Then, the Kalman filter is used to estimate the state of the coupled model, and a model predictive controller is designed according to the estimated state. The least square method is adapted to fit the nonlinear relationship between path curvature and prediction horizon, and a dynamic model predictive controller with variable prediction horizon is designed. Finally, the simulation and the test of the steering control of the driving robot at different conditions are conducted, and the results verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Key words: driving robot, steering control, Kalman filter, prediction horizon, dynamic model predictive control
