Semi-Autonomous Electric Vehicles in Platooning Mode and Their Effects on Travel Time: A Framework for Simulation Evaluation
Sprache des Vortragstitels:
Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) have
received a lot of attention in recent years. However, there
are still numerous challenges in this field. In this paper, we
investigated the effects of dynamic-flexible platooning on travel
time by considering real-world trips data. For this purpose
we extended the platooning capabilities of the 3DCoAutosim
simulation platform, and proposed a dynamic-flexible model
that we validated by creating use cases on traffic efficiency.
We studied our dynamic-flexible platooning case for three
electric vans with an autonomous leader, a semi-autonomous
first follower with a driver, and an autonomous last follower.
Results showed that the model developed in this study is efficient
to investigate the effects of dynamic-flexible platooning on travel
