The large parameter variations in heavy-duty trucks make it very difficult to find appropriate settings for fixed structure speed controllers. Satisfying the design specifications with experience-based trial-and-error methods for the control design is very time-consuming. This paper discusses the use of experimental frequency domain methods for the tuning of speed controllers. The focus is on the cruise control, but the method is also applicable to other speed controllers. Experimental results are given to validate the approach.
