With the development of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs), a promising future for their implementation becomes increasingly apparent. However, it is essential to acknowledge that the effects of AV deployment are not straightforward, particularly when considering scenarios involving AVs from different manufacturers and various levels of automation. The...

Urged by a close future perspective of a traffic flow made of a mix of human-driven vehicles and automated vehicles (AVs), research has recently focused on studying the traffic flow characteristics of Adaptive Cruise Controls (ACCs), the most typical AV. However, in most works, the ACC system is studied under a simplifying and unrealistic...

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) relieves human drivers’ tasks by taking over the control of the throttle and braking of the vehicles automatically. However, it has been demonstrated in many empirical studies that current production ACC systems fail to guarantee string stability. It is believed that if vehicles can take the longitudinal dynamics...

In this paper a learning-based optimization method for online gear shift and velocity control is presented to reduce the fuel consumption and improve the driving comfort in a car-following process. The continuous traction force and the discrete gear shift are optimized jointly to improve both the powertrain operation and the longitudinal...

Advanced driver assistance systems such as adaptive cruise control (ACC) and lane keeping system (LKS) potentially contribute to reducing crash rates and traffic congestion. On-road studies based on early ACC systems operational at medium–high speeds only have shown that the system reduces the proportion of short time gaps when activated....

While several synchronization-based protocols have been provided for formation-keeping of cooperative vehicles, the problem of synchronized merging is more challenging. Challenges associated to the merging scenario include the need for establishing bidirectional interaction (in place of unidirectional look-ahead interaction), and the need for...

Truck platooning is an application of cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) which relies on vehicle-to-vehicle communications facilitated by vehicle ad-hoc networks. Communication uncertainties can affect the performance of a CACC controller. Previous research has not considered the full spectrum of possible car-following scenarios needed...

In adaptive platooning strategies proposed in literature to handle uncertain and nonidentical uncertain vehicle dynamics (uncertain heterogeneous platoons) two aspects requiring proper design are neglected: bidirectional interaction among vehicles which might lead to loss of string stability, and engine saturation constraints which might lead...

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) can reduce traffic congestion and accidents. In dense traffic flow conditions and when changing lanes, drivers prefer to deactivate the ACC. These control transitions between automation and manual driving could impact driver behaviour characteristics. However, few studies have analysed the magnitude and duration of...

The Dutch governmental organisation Rijkswaterstaat contributes to the smooth and safe flow of traffic, as both traffic jams and accidents cost society large amounts of money each day. Roads are designed for the current traffic composition. Due to the promotion of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) systems, utilisation of these systems is expected to...

Sags are roadway sections along which the gradient increases gradually in the direction of traffic. Sags are generally bottlenecks in freeway networks. Previous research suggests that traffic management measures using advanced Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) systems could reduce congestion on freeways, but little is known about their potential...

Adaptive CACC strategies have been recently proposed to stabilize a platoon with non-identical and uncertain vehicle dynamics (heterogeneous platoon). This work proposes a method to augment such strategies with a mechanism coping with saturation constraints (i.e. engine constraints). In fact, in a platoon of heterogeneous vehicles, engine...

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and automated vehicles can contribute to reduce traffic congestion and accidents. Field operational Tests have shown that drivers may prefer to deactivate ACC systems that are inactive at low speeds in dense traffic conditions and before changing lanes. These transitions between automated and manual driving are...

Hashish, Ahmed (author)
This thesis covers the implementation of Event-Triggering Control (ETC) on Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC). CACC has the potential to increase road capacity, by having safe vehicle following with small intervehicle distance (less than 1 second), to increase traffic flow by eliminating shockwave effects, such that string-stable...

Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) systems have the potential to increase roadway capacity and mitigate traffic congestion thanks to the short following distance enabled by inter-vehicle communication. However, due to limitations in acceleration and deceleration capabilities of CACC systems, deactivation and switch to ACC or human...

Driving simulators have been used since the beginning of the 1930s to assist researchers in assessing driver behaviour without putting the driver in harm’s way. The current manuscript describes the implementation of a toolbox for automated driving research on the widely used STISIM platform. The toolbox presented in this manuscript allows...

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and automated vehicles can contribute to reduce traffic congestion and accidents. Recently, an on-road study has shown that drivers may prefer to deactivate full-range ACC when closing in on a slower leader and to overrule it by pressing the gas pedal a few seconds after the activation of the system. Notwithstanding...

Platoons of autonomous vehicles are currently being investigated by academic and industrial researchers as a way to increase road capacity and fuel efficiency. In order to fully reach such goals, a platoon must be endowed with cooperative capabilities, such as Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC). This technique is based on the vehicles’...
