Abstract

This study expects that the automatic driving control for passing through intersection has potential for energy saving and solving traffic jams. Therefore, first, this study calculates the predicted effect of the automatic driving control at intersection in simulations. Second, this study proposes the control method for vehicles to pass through an intersection by cooperating with each other on contact with the intersectiontraffic control which manages the schedule of vehicles to enter the intersection. Third, a vehicle control algorithm for reaching the intersection on the scheduled time is also proposed. Last, the proposed vehicle control and intersection-traffic control are validated by experiments using electric light vehicles.
