Project Abstract:
We will deploy a connected smart infrastructure (CSI) on a highway in order to collect and aggregate traffic information that can be used by heavy-duty trucks traveling the corridor to improve their efficiency. The system will consist of a set of roadside units which collect traffic data via cellular vehicle-to-everything (CV2X) communication. The heavy-duty trucks will utilize the collected data when controlling their longitudinal motion in order to maximize their fuel economy without compromising their travel time.
