Breakout 21: Connected and Automated Vehicles in Traffic Signal Systems

Breakout 21: Connected and Automated Vehicles in Traffic Signal Systems

Wednesday, July 12, 1:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Continental 8


  • Larry Head, University of Arizona
  • Henry Liu, University of Michigan
  • Young-Jun Moon, The Korea Transport Institute

The goal of this two-part breakout session is to explore opportunities for new approaches to control of signalized intersections (or more broadly controlled junctions) for CAV. This session explores the role of infrastructure and the vehicle in decision making and control decisions and how vehicles and the infrastructure can cooperate to safely and efficiently operate the intersection of roadways.

1:30 PM – 3:00 PM Session 1: Signal Control for Connected and Automated Vehicles Moderator – Mehdi Zamanipour, FHWA

Centralized v.s. Distributed Speed Coordination of Cooperative Vehicles at Intersections

  • Meng Wang, Technical University of Delft

Connected and Automated Driving at an Signalized Intersection – Two Examples of Vehicle-Signal Cooperation
