Extended Development and Testing of Optimized Signal Control with Autonomous and Connected Vehicles

This research has four primary objectives: (1) Extend the scope of the previously developed traffic intersection sensor fusion system to incorporate pedestrians, bicyclists and scooters; (2) Investigate how safety and efficiency of the CAV can be enhanced in the vicinity of the intersection; (3) Extend optimization algorithm to use real-time tracking information of vehicles and consider the presence of pedestrians and other modes when optimizing signal control; and (4) Implement the extended optimization algorithm.
