This paper presents results on how to optimally negotiate two safety-critical vehicle maneuvers,depending on different set of actuators. The motives for this research has been to provide viable knowledge of limitations of vehicle control under the presence of preview sensors, such as radar, camera and navigation. Using tools available in the JModelica.org platform, an optimal path is found by optimising the sequence of actuator requests during the maneuver. Particular interest is paid on the optimal trade-off between braking and steering.
