Collection description

The deployment of innovative, fully automated C-ITS connected mobility services is expected to mitigate traffic congestion - making cities and human settlements safe, resilient, sustainable - and decrease the number of road accidents. However, the spread of automated and connected vehicles into existing traffic poses specific and new problems regarding reliability and effectiveness, particularly concerning interactions with other vehicles and with other actors. Furthermore, automated driving systems must be suitably designed to be resilient to both the uncertainties of V2X (Vehicle-to-Vehicle or Vehicle-to-Infrastructure) communication and drivers to ensure sufficient reliability and robustness in any traffic situation in the real world. Within this framework, this thesis deals with the following challenges: i) develop innovative, reliable and resilient C-ITS strategies for cooperation between vehicles and between vehicles and infrastructures, based on V2X communication; ii) test and validate C-ITS strategies in complex and realistic traffic conditions. In the light of the first goal, different control strategies addressing many various issues are proposed for both urban and extra-urban traffic scenarios as well as for both mixed and fully-autonomous traffic flows. To achieve goal 2, a novel Integrated Simulation Environment, named Mixed Traffic Simulator (MiTraS), for the assessment and evaluation of C-ITS services is proposed. It embeds different interacting simulation tools within a holistic view of the co-simulation approach to be as realistic as possible.
