Enhanced AHS Safety Through the Integration of Vehicle Control and Communication

  title={Enhanced AHS Safety Through the Integration of Vehicle Control and Communication},
  author={J. Karl Hedrick and Michael Uchanski and Qingzhen Xu},
We comparatively assess the influence of adaptive cruise control (ACC) and cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) systems on highway traffic behaviors. The primary goal is to study the design and implementation of vehicle-vehicle/roadside-vehicle communication, which enhances an ACC system to a CACC one. In addition, the impact of market penetration of ACC/CACC vehicles and controller aggression are also evaluated. Two simulation works are presented. The microscopic work simulates a single… CONTINUE READING
