Autonomous Vehicles

Intersection Control For Autonomous Vehicles


Autonomous Vehicles

The intersection control system proposed promises to process traffic more efficiently than traffic lights and stop signs can without compromising safety.

Its development is guided by a set of criteria that include

  • the use of current or near-term sensor technologies
  • the adoption of a standardized communication protocol
  • the ability to deploy incrementally, allowing expansion to other intersections and adaptation to increasing numbers of autonomous vehicles.

Absolute collision prevention, even under conditions of communications failure, and high levels of efficiency are primary goals for the system.

Its major tasks are the development of a detailed vehicle–infrastructure communication protocol and the development and testing of prototype agent-control algorithms.
