Access Control at Major-Minor Intersection through CAV in Mixed Traffic
Ping Yi, Professor of Civil Engineering – The University of Akron
This research studies potential gap utilization at intersection entrances when CAV is mixed with ordinary vehicles (non-CAV). Study of gap characteristics helps the design and implementation of responsive signal control schemes that utilize CAV to adjust gaps of mainline vehicles for the minor street vehicles to enter the intersection. Traffic flow analysis will be conducted and math models developed to assess the effectiveness of the application in different traffic scenarios. Simulation tests will be made to help define model parameters. Field testing will demonstrate the feasibility of application and evaluate the reliability and impact of the control logic and the integrated system.
