Platooning and cooperative driving at freeway merges 14. November 2019 | 14:00 Uhr - 15:30 Uhr
In this presentation, recent advances in modeling and design of cooperative driving systems will be discussed. Simulation based impact assessment of CACC with control authority transition between human driver and automation on traffic flow characteristics will be presented. The insights into the impact of CACC systems on traffic flow shed lights on designing cooperative merging systems. We then propose a hierarchical model-based framework to optimize merging sequence, lane change time and location to maximize efficiency, safety and comfort. The performance of the framework is demonstrated in simulation.
