Non-connected vehicle detection using connected vehicles - Phase 1 and 2

Connected vehicle (CV) technologies are entering the realm of deployment. They have the potential to help drivers make safe, reliable and informed decisions, and thereby to enhance network capacity and reduce congestion. During the transition to CV technologies, there will be mixed traffic streams of CVs and non- CVs. While most studies have analyzed the CV car-following behavior in a pure CV environment, there is the need for a comprehensive CV car-following model in general mixed flow environment. Further, to improve the efficiency and reliability of traffic operations under mixed flow environments, there is the need to observe not only CV trajectory data, but also non-CV location/trajectory. This study proposes a mixed flow CV car- following model which will generate realistic CV trajectories in a mixed flow environment. Then, a Hidden Markov Model, which is a probabilistic inference approach, is proposed to identify non-CV locations/trajectories. This methodology will be integrated with a cooperative situational awareness framework.The proposed model will be analyzed using real-world vehicle trajectory data to aid the situational awareness of CVs under low market penetration rates.
