The research presented in this paper develops a framework to enhance vehicle fuel consumption efficiency while approaching a signalized intersection through the provision of signal phase and timing information that may be available through vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. While past research uses simplified objective functions to optimize fuel(More)
Researchers have attempted to compute a fuel-optimal vehicle trajectory by receiving traffic signal phasing and timing information. This problem, however, is complex when microscopic models are used to compute the objective function. This paper suggests use of a multi-stage dynamic programming tool that not only provides outputs that are closer to optimum,(More)
Recently several artificial intelligence labs have suggested the use of fully equipped vehicles with the capability of sensing the surrounding environment to enhance roadway safety. As a result, it is anticipated in the future that many vehicles will be autonomous and thus there is a need to optimize the movement of these vehicles. This paper presents a new(More)
Eco-Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (ECACC) systems are a type of Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) that compute the most fuel-efficient (or near-fuel efficient) vehicle trajectory using available information regarding roadway characteristics, set-speed, upcoming signal changes and interaction with other vehicles. ECACC leverages information(More)
This report presents three research efforts that are being published in various journals. The first research effort presents a reactive-driving agent based algorithm for modeling driver left turn gap acceptance behavior at signalized intersections. This model considers the interaction between driver characteristics and vehicle physical capabilities. The(More)
Stopping for red lights at intersections forms a major share of energy lost by a vehicle. Studies have indicated that an intelligent approach to vary speeds of vehicles to reduce stopping and idling at intersections can yield major savings in fuel and emissions. However, speed variation for eco-benefits depends on traffic congestion largely. This makes(More)
The use of advanced technology in automobiles has increased dramatically over the past decade. Automobile manufacturers continue to equip vehicles with more in-vehicle devices, including: navigation systems, blind-spot assist systems and adaptive cruise control systems. At the same time, regulators such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Authority have(More)
