We explored a vehicle hill descent control (HDC) system based on an electronic stability program (ESP) and applied this system to brake cars. The experimental results reveal that our system can effectively reduce the workload of a driver during a downhill journey. In the first phase of our work, the control strategy of the HDC system based on fuzzy-PID (Proportion Integral Differential) was built by MATLAB/Simulink. Then, the co-simulation based on MATLAB/Simulink, CarSim and AMESim was carried

A series of simulation experiments and real vehicle tests show that the HDC system can assist the driver to control the vehicle while driving downhill at low speed, thus effectively improving the safety of the vehicle and reducing the workload of driver.
