Modelling and Simulation of Object Detection in Automotive Power Window


The paper focuses on the system modelling of hardware based power window control system. In power window system, Direct Current (DC) motor served as the source of power to drive the power window frame and accordingly power window can be raised and lowered. In the paper, mathematical model of a DC motor controlled by an H bridge circuit and bridge is controlled through input switches which are available at driver and passenger door side. The main objective of power window control is to control the movement of glass door in upper and lower direction and this operation is controlled with the help of current sensor, fire sensor and position sensor in the replacement of manual control hand turned crank techniques for existing power windows. The driving component is DC motor that drives the power window using selflocking techniques for worm gear in the minimum ratio of 1:50 and output of worm gear goes to lead screw having pitch of 3mm to deliver linear movement to power window. The control unit of power window senses both high and low load obstructions. It is used to activate and deactivate the movement of the glass door in upward direction and downward direction with the help of DC motor, whenever, any hard and soft obstruction is detected. The automatic power window with intelligent control is designed and verified with several conditions that claim its movement in upward and downward direction. The simulation model is visualized in MATLAB/Simulink and performance is analysed with respect to current, voltage and speed measurement.
