This paper presents a socially acceptable collision avoidance system for an automated vehicle based on the elastic band method. Both stationary and moving Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs: pedestrians or bicyclists) are considered in the proposed system. A collision free path is first determined and then Model Predictive Control (MPC) based vehicle front wheel steering is applied to track this collision free path. For the purposes of benchmarking and comparison, the results of a conventional PID steering controller are also presented. The designed system is tested with simulations on a path chosen from the west campus of the Ohio State University, whose waypoints are extracted automatically from OpenStreetMap (OSM). Simulation results show that the MPC based steering control system successfully achieves the required collision avoidance and path following and has comparable or better performance when compared with the conventional PID solution.
