Efficient speed controllers for dynamic driving tasks in autonomous vehicles are crucial for ensuring safety and reliability. This study proposes a novel approach for designing a fractional order proportional-integral-derivative (FOPID) controller that utilizes a modified elite opposition-based artificial hummingbird algorithm (m-AHA) for optimal parameter tuning. Our approach outperforms existing optimization techniques on benchmark functions, and we demonstrate its effectiveness in controlling cruise control systems with increased flexibility and precision. Our study contributes to the advancement of autonomous vehicle technology by introducing a novel and efficient method for FOPID controller design that can enhance the driving experience while ensuring safety and reliability. We highlight the significance of our findings by demonstrating how our approach can improve the performance, safety, and reliability of autonomous vehicles. This study’s contributions are particularly relevant in the context of the growing demand for autonomous vehicles and the need for advanced control techniques to ensure their safe operation. Our research provides a promising avenue for further research and development in this area.
