Advanced safety vehicles (ASV) assist drivers in avoiding traffic accidents, and research in all areas of automatic driving systems is necessary to further develop ASV technology. This paper focuses on a visual feedback approach in which an automatic driving system is obtained by recognizing the road trajectory using image information. The validity of this approach is examined by conducting experiments with a radio-controlled car. First, a practical image processing algorithm that recognizes white lines on the road is proposed. Next, a model of the radio-controlled car is built by system identification experiments and all automatic steering control system is designed based upon H control theory. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed control system is examined via traveling experiments.
