Measurement of absolute vehicle speed with a simplified inverse model

Mei, T X & Hong, H 2010, 'Measurement of absolute vehicle speed with a simplified inverse model', IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, 59(3), pp.1164-1171.


This paper proposes a completely new approach to the accurate and reliable measurement of vehicle ground speed which overcomes the problems of traditional wheel/axle-based methods especially in wheel-spin/slide conditions. The new technique has drawn a lot of attention from rail industry and we have been invited to present the work to a wide range of audiences including IMechE Railway Division, Cross Rail Industry Adhesion Research Group and Rail Research UK workshop 2010.
