Intelligent Control of Connected and Automated Vehicles
Understand cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) for connected and automated vehicles, and explore recent developments made in human-centered CACC design in mixed traffic scenarios.
What you will learn:
- Describe the key components that enable CACC systems
- Understand the linear controller design for CACC of a platoon of connected and automated vehicles under the given spacing policy, communication policy, and vehicle dynamics
- Distinguish the different stability criteria for CACC platoons
- Review platoon in mixed traffic scenarios and human-centered CACC design
