Project Abstract:
This project aims at developing new science and technology of vehicle trajectory based traffic control, especially under lower penetration of CAVs. Most of the existing models require at least a moderate penetration rate (e.g., 30%) to be effective. How to estimate real-time traffic condition and perform control under lower penetration rate (e.g., <10%) is still an open question. In addition, when the vehicle control is incorporated into signal control, usually a fully CAV environment is assumed. The interactions between CAVs and regular vehicles in a mixed traffic condition are not thoroughly investigated.
