A comparison is made between two vehicle control strategies for two different manoeuvres: a gentle and aggressive lane-change. Simulation results demonstrate that the choice of control objectives and selection of appropriate design approximations have a significant impact on the performance of the controller under these different manoeuvre conditions. A lateral control design trade-off between passenger comfort and collision avoidance capability is evident.
