Research and Field Testing of Vehicle-Traffic Control with Limited-Capacity Connected/Automated Vehicles

While connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) have received much attention in transportation especially on how they may transform future urban traffic/vehicle control, it is becoming increasingly clear that in the near future, we will have to deal with a relatively low penetration of CAVs with limited level of autonomy (e.g., Level 2 or Level 3). Thus how to understand and test in real world the benefits of CAVs with limited penetration and autonomy for vehicle-traffic control remains an interesting and imperative question. This research aims to extend and field test the CAV-based traffic signal/vehicle control methods the team has developed in the past (many were supported by C2SMART) to understand and quantify the benefits of CAV-based control in real world. The team will collaborate with UW’s EcoCar3 team to conduct field testing and to involve students from different levels (Ph.D., graduate and undergraduate students) and backgrounds to participate in this multidisciplinary and cutting edge research project.
