Effects of Vehicle-vehicle / roadside-vehicle Communication on Adaptive Cruise Controlled Highway Systems

  title={Effects of Vehicle-vehicle / roadside-vehicle Communication on Adaptive Cruise Controlled Highway Systems},
  author={Qing Xu and Karl J. Hedrick and Raja Sengupta and Joel VanderWerf},
In this paper we study the effect of vehiclevehicle/vehicle-roadside communication on the performance of adaptive cruise control (ACC) systems. Two simulation works are presented. One is a single ACC vehicle simulation using MATLAB/SIMULINK. A cut-in scenario and a braking scenario are tested. Communication greatly saves control effort in the former scenario, while has little effect in the latter. The other work simulates ACC controlled highway merging with SHIFT language. The results show… CONTINUE READING
