Abstract: This presentation focuses on the deployment of connected smart infrastructure on highway I-275 in SE Michigan. Researchers collected and aggregated traffic information that can be used by connected vehicles traveling the corridor to improve their efficiency. The system consists of a set of roadside units (RSU) that collect traffic data via vehicle-to-everything (CV2X) communication. Vehicles of different levels of automation may utilize the collected data when selecting their lane and controlling their longitudinal motion in order to maximize their fuel economy and minimize their travel time. The impact of these vehicles on the rest of the traffic flow is also being evaluated.
Gabor Orosz received the MSc degree in Engineering Physics from the Budapest University of Technology, Hungary, in 2002, and the Ph.D. degree in Engineering Mathematics from the University of Bristol, UK, in 2006. He held postdoctoral positions at the University of Exeter, UK, and at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 2010, he joined the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor where he is currently an Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering and in Civil and Environmental Engineering. During 2017-2018 he was a Visiting Professor in Control and Dynamical Systems at the California Institute of Technology. His research interests include nonlinear dynamics and control, time-delay systems, and reinforcement learning with applications to connected and automated vehicles, traffic flow, and biological networks. He served as the Program Chair of the 2015 IFAC Workshop on Time Delay Systems and served as the General Chair of the 2019 IAVSD Workshop on Dynamics of Road Vehicles: Connected and Automated Vehicles. Since 2018 he has been serving as an editor for the journal Transportation Research Part C.
