Trailer system could increase the transportation capability by low cost in manufacture and operation. Also, this system could be transformed and rearranged by various purpose of operation. Because of these advantages, multiple trailer system is applied in various part of society.

Although trailer systems are used widely, they have critical disadvantages. Since all passive trailers are towed by one vehicle, passive trailers cannot be controlled. Therefore, a bus-trailer cannot move backward in a bus-trailer depot and trailer-driving licenses especially exist.

Prior research for solving this problem has focused on automatic control systems. However, automatic control also has limitations.



Conventional control


CLMR Experiment

Result of simulation
Vehicle moves forward for the correct direction of vehicle and passive trailer  in tandem  Distance under the proposed control  model is shorter then conventional control model  Car like mobile robot Experiment It represent The total computational time is drastically decreased
