A Leader-Based Vehicle Platoon Control Strategy at Signalized Intersections Considering Efficiency

In this paper, we propose a leader-based control strategy for vehicle platoon at signalized intersections. The speed guidance which regards the states of followers and the signal phase and timing (SPaT) information is adopted for the leader of the platoon. The Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) with a piecewise policy is used to control the followers. The efficiency of the signalized intersection is specifically considered when constructing the control strategy. The simulation results show that the proposed strategy can control the vehicle platoon smoothly cross signalized intersections without stop and ensure the traffic efficiency simultaneously.
