Replacing the stop sign: unmanaged intersection control for autonomous vehicles

  title={Replacing the stop sign: unmanaged intersection control for autonomous vehicles},
  author={Mark Van Middlesworth and Kurt M. Dresner and Peter Stone},
As computers replace humans as the drivers of automobiles, our current traffic management mechanisms will give way to hyper-efficient protocols designed to exploit the capabilities of fully autonomous vehicles. We have introduced such a system for coordinating large numbers of autonomous vehicles at intersections [2, 3]. Our experiments suggest that this system could alleviate many of the dangers and delays associated with intersections by allowing vehicles to “call ahead” to an agent stationed… CONTINUE READING
