Abstract: In the inaugural CCAT Research Review, Professor Sridhar Lakshmanan will highlight his 2019-funded project that aims to create efficient, multi-truck platoons to increase fuel efficiency. The proposal implements cellular-vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) as there are certain vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) cases where dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) fails.
