Traffic Optimization on Signalized Corridors (TOSCo) Proof of Concept Development and Test

Traffic Optimization on Signalized Corridors (TOSCo) is the concept of Level 1 Automated Vehicles (AVs) connected and cooperatively traveling along signalized corridors in platoon strings receiving signal timing and infrastructure mapping messages to optimize flow, efficiency, and fuel. Phase 1 of the TOSCo project is complete and conducted concept and algorithm development, and modeling and simulation results that indicate 10-20 percent reduction in stop delays that result in improved corridor traffic flow, travel time and fuel savings. Building upon the TOSCo phase 1 results, the nine automakers (Original Equipment Manufacturers - OEMs) in the CAMP consortium will lead TOSCo Phase 2 and will actively partner with the Connected Vehicle Pooled Fund Study (CV PFS) State DOTs to develop proof of concept and field test up to five automated vehicles along their real world, multi-intersection SPaT Challenge corridors.
