The connectivity aspect of connected autonomous vehicles (CAV) is beneficial because it facilitates dissemination of traffic-related information to vehicles through Vehicle-to-External (V2X) communication. Onboard sensing equipment including LiDAR and camera can reasonably characterize the traffic environment in the immediate locality of the CAV. However, their performance is limited by their sensor range (SR). On the other hand, longer-range information is helpful for characterizing imminent…

A Cooperative Control Framework for CAV Lane Change in a Mixed Traffic Environment
TLDR
A control framework where connected HDVs and CAV can cooperate to facilitate safe and efficient lane changing by the CAV is developed, and how CHDV-CAV cooperation could help enhancing system efficiency is shown.
Vehicle Connectivity and Automation: A Sibling Relationship
TLDR
The paper suggests that at the current time, the sibling relationship seems to be lopsided: vehicle connectivity has immense potential to enhance vehicle automation, and Automation may not significantly promote vehicle connectivity directly, at least not in the short term but possibly in the long term.
