CO2 emission of vehicles and its influence on climate change is a widely discussed topic already for many years. New CO2 emission norms for vehicles have been defined based on the 2021 baseline: 15% reduction resulting in 0.09 kg/km for 2025, and 37.5% reduction resulting in 0.069 kg/km for 2030. Both norms are defined under the Worldwide...

Growth of mobility for people and goods transportation has been increasing steadily over the years. With the perpetual increase in number of road vehicles, comes the inevitable problems of traffic and pollution. Various intelligent traffic technologies and strategies have been proposed and implemented over the years to...

Traffic congestion on highways is a multi-sectoral phenomenon affecting society, the economy and the environment. It often takes place at specific locations such as on and off-ramps, weaving segments and intersections. The on-ramp merging procedure is considered as one of the main factors that causes traffic congestion on highways. The studies...

Truck platooning refers to coordinating a group of heavy-duty vehicles at a close inter-vehicle distance to reduce overall fuel consumption. This coordination between trucks is traditionally achieved by adjusting the schedule, velocity, and routines to increase the platooning chances, and thus improve the overall fuel efficiency. However, the...

The future brings Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs), where platooning with small inter-vehicle time gaps is possible. However, before the situation that the entire car park exists of CAVs, there is a transition period. This MSc. thesis has developed two strategies (in MOTUS), to let CAVs actively form platoons with dynamic dedicated lane...

In this research, insight is gained into the impacts of truck platooning on traffic performance and safety at motorway on-ramps in mixed traffic using microscopic simulation. Thereby different platooning strategies and platoon configurations are considered, that for instance differ in desired platoon inter-vehicle gaps and platoon sizes. The...

This thesis is assessing the effects of (Cooperative) Adaptive Cruise Control using microscopic and mesoscopic simulations in Aimsun. The Gipps car-following model is manipulated in such a way that it represents (C)ACC driving behavior to a satisfactory extent. A simulation network of a part of the A15 highway containing the junctions Ridderkerk...

Trucks are largely used in road transportation worldwide in recent decades, and make great contributions to the GDP. Statistics shows that a large number of truck-involved accidents occur related to the ramp in merging manoeuvres on the highway. The accidents involved in trucks can lead to a considerable economic cost. The development of...

The research field of autonomous vehicle technology has been growing at an accelerated pace. Improved safety, fuel and commuting efficiency are the motivating technical and social factors to develop fully autonomous vehicles. Sensor technology, advanced software and intelligent control are the different modules that work in unison to achieve the...
