  title={Stability Analysis of Nonlinear Inviscid Microscopic and Macroscopic Traffic Flow Models of Bidirectional Cruise-Controlled Vehicles},
  author={Iasson Karafyllis and Dionysis Theodosios and Markos Papageorgiou},
The paper introduces a new bidirectional microscopic inviscid Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) model that uses only spacing information from the preceding and following vehicles in order to select the proper control action to avoid collisions and maintain a desired speed. KL estimates that guarantee uniform convergence of the ACC model to the set of equilibria are provided. Moreover, the corresponding macroscopic model is derived, consisting of a conservation equation and a momentum equation that… Expand


PDE-Based Feedback Control of Freeway Traffic Flow via Time-Gap Manipulation of ACC-Equipped Vehicles
The feedback law is designed in order to stabilize the linearized system, around a uniform, congested equilibrium profile, and the stability of the closed-loop system under the developed control law is shown in constructing a Lyapunov functional. Expand
Stable Decentralized Control of a Platoon of Vehicles With Heterogeneous Information Feedback
The problem of controlling a string of vehicles moving in one dimension is considered so that they all follow a lead vehicle with constant spacing between successive vehicles and the negative effect of the tracking lag parameter is taken into account. Expand
Analysis and Control of a Non-Local PDE Traffic Flow Model
Conditions that guarantee existence and uniqueness of classical solutions for a non-local conservation law on a ring-road with possible nudging (or "look behind") terms and results which indicate that nudging can increase the flow in aRing-road and can have a strong stabilizing effect on traffic flow are provided.

Stability and robustness of large platoons of vehicles with double‐integrator models and nearest neighbor interaction
It is seen that the symmetric bidirectional architecture outperforms the predecessor-following architecture in all measures of performance, and the nonlinear controller is seen to perform better in general than the linear one. Expand
Nonlinear Adaptive Cruise Control of Vehicular Platoons
It is shown that the proposed novel controllers guarantee safety (collision avoidance) and bounded vehicle speeds by explicitly characterizing the set of allowable inputs by guaranteeing global asymptotic stability of the platoon to a desired configuration as well as string stability. Expand
Derivation of non-local macroscopic traffic equations and consistent traffic pressures from microscopic car-following models
The derivation circumvents approximations and demonstrates the large range of validity of macroscopic traffic equations, without the need of averaging over many vehicles. Expand
Stochastic Modeling and Simulation of Traffic Flow: Asymmetric Single Exclusion Process with Arrhenius look-ahead dynamics
Based on scaling and limit arguments, a macroscopic description is obtained of this microscopic dynamics formulation which up to leading term of the expansions takes the form of integrodifferential Burgers or higher-order dispersive partial differential equations. Expand
Stability Analysis of Mixed-Autonomy Traffic with CAV Platoons using Two-class Aw-Rascle Model
Deterministic and stochastic stability of mixed-autonomy traffic with connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) platoons and conventional vehicles on a freeway segment is investigated and a linear hyperbolic PDEs with Markov jump model parameters and boundary conditions is considered. Expand
Traffic congestion control for Aw-Rascle-Zhang model
An adaptive output feedback control law is developed which achieves convergence to the steady regulation in the L2 sense and finite time convergence to equilibrium are achieved. Expand
Stability and Scalability of Homogeneous Vehicular Platoon: Study on the Influence of Information Flow Topologies
Under linear feedback controllers, a unified internal stability theorem is proved by using the algebraic graph theory and Routh-Hurwitz stability criterion, and the stabilizing thresholds of linear controller gains for platoons are established under a large class of different information flow topologies.
