Using AI to Improve CAV Operations in Mixed Traffic

Dr. Sikai (Sky) Chen will discuss recent developments in vehicle automation with mixed traffic stream, including the challenges and opportunities associated with AI/ML algorithm development and application for CAV operations.

Roadmap to Cooperative & Automated Transportation

Virtual 6 MetroTech Center, Brooklyn, NY, United States

To realize the full potential of AVs, Dr. Li proposes a roadmap of cooperative & automated transportation, from optimal trajectory control in ideal conditions through a cooperative control framework incorporating edge computing and machine learning under real-world constraints.

Performance Measurement from the New York City Connected Vehicle Pilot

Virtual 6 MetroTech Center, Brooklyn, NY, United States

The NYC CV Pilot has deployed over 450 roadside units and 3,000 aftermarket safety devices in vehicles running 13 vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure applications focused on safety. The webinar will provide an overview of the performance evaluation of the deployed CV applications in NYC’s urban canyon environment. The webinar will also cover NYC’s plans for the next phase of the project after completion of the CV Pilot’s Phase III operations. 

Lane Changing of Autonomous Vehicles in Mixed Traffic Environments: A Reinforcement Learning Approach

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The emergence of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) presents increased opportunities to mitigate traffic congestion, improve safety and reduce accidents. Professor Zhong-Ping Jiang, and researchers Leilei Cui and Sayan Chakraborty are applying innovative reinforcement learning control methods to one challenging aspect of CAV control: lane changing in mixed traffic. The team takes a novel approach by reducing the trajectory planning and tracking problem down to the minimization of a cost function that depends on a target way-point in the lane a CAV is targeting.
