  author={Jiawei Wang and Yang Zheng and Qing Xu and Keqiang Li},
Cooperative control of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) promises great benefits for mixed traffic. Most existing research focuses on model-based control strategies, assuming that car-following dynamics of humandriven vehicles (HDVs) are explicitly known. In this paper, instead of relying on a parametric car-following model, we introduce a data-driven predictive control strategy to achieve safe and optimal control for CAVs in mixed traffic. We first present a linearized dynamical model…

Learning-Based Adaptive Optimal Control for Connected Vehicles in Mixed Traffic: Robustness to Driver Reaction Time.
It is shown that by using reinforcement learning and adaptive dynamic programming techniques, a near-optimal controller can be learned from real-time data for the CAV with V2V communications, but without the precise knowledge of the accurate car-following parameters of any driver in the platoon.
Controllability Analysis and Optimal Control of Mixed Traffic Flow With Human-Driven and Autonomous Vehicles
It is proved for the first time that a ring-road mixed traffic system with one CAV and multiple heterogeneous human-driven vehicles is not completely controllable, but is stabilizable under a very mild condition and an upper bound for reachable traffic velocity is derived via controlling the CAV.
Leading Cruise Control in Mixed Traffic Flow: System Modeling, Controllability, and String Stability
This paper introduces a notion of Leading Cruise Control (LCC), in which the CAV maintains car-following operations adapting to the states of its preceding vehicles, and also aims to lead the motion of its following vehicles.
Smoothing Traffic Flow via Control of Autonomous Vehicles
It is shown that the mixed traffic system is not completely controllable, but is stabilizable, indicating that AVs can not only suppress unstable traffic waves but also guide the traffic flow to a higher speed.
Data-Driven Adaptive Optimal Control of Connected Vehicles
In this paper, a data-driven non-model-based approach is proposed for the adaptive optimal control of a class of connected vehicles that is composed of $n$ human-driven vehicles only transmitting
Dynamical Modeling and Distributed Control of Connected and Automated Vehicles: Challenges and Opportunities
This paper introduces a decomposition framework to model, analyze, and design the platoon system, and the basis of typical distributed control techniques is presented, including linear consensus control, distributed robust control, distributing sliding mode control, and distributed model predictive control.
Connected cruise control: modelling, delay effects, and nonlinear behaviour
ABSTRACT Connected vehicle systems (CVS) are considered in this paper where vehicles exchange information using wireless vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication. The concept of connected cruise

It is shown that, by decomposing the optimization problem, the feedback gains can be obtained recursively as signals from vehicles farther ahead become available, and that the gains decay exponentially with the number of cars between the source of the signal and the CCC vehicle.
Control of Connected and Automated Vehicles: State of the Art and Future Challenges
A control and planning architecture for CAVs is introduced, and the state of the art on each functional block therein is surveyed; the main focus is on techniques to improve energy efficiency.
Dissipation of stop-and-go waves via control of autonomous vehicles: Field experiments
It is demonstrated experimentally that intelligent control of an autonomous vehicle is able to dampen stop-and-go waves that can arise even in the absence of geometric or lane changing triggers, suggesting a paradigm shift in traffic management.
