Developing Agent-Based Distributed Cooperative Vehicle-Infrastructure Systems in the Connected and Automated Vehicle Environment

In this project, the researcher aims to create an agent-based cooperative vehicle-infrastructure system (CVIS) framework, and develop modeling and control approaches in a connected and automated vehicle (CAV) environment to solve current issues of transportation systems, especially to improve energy sustainability.

The proposed CVIS framework generally consists of two parts: cooperative vehicle-to vehicle systems, and cooperative vehicle-to-infrastructure systems. Multiple agent-based modeling and control approaches (i.e., distributed protocol, consensus algorithm, flocking algorithm, etc.) can be designed and applied to this framework in a CAV environment.
