Traffic Signal Control with Connected and Autonomous Vehicles in the Traffic Stream
Abstract
The presentation will discuss on-going work to develop optimization algorithms, simulation tools, and sensor capabilities for enhancing traffic signal control operations when the traffic stream consists of connected vehicles, autonomous vehicles, and conventional vehicles. Early versions of the optimization were deployed and tested at the Traffic Engineering and Research Laboratory (TERL), an FDOT closed-course facility. The results from the field test confirmed the feasibility of the concept and are now used to enhance it for future testing and ultimately for field deployment. The research, led by UF, is funded by NSF and FDOT, and involves two industry partners: ISS and Econolite.
Biography
