Abstract

Identifying traffic platoons and managing vehicles on the road effectively is a challenging task that is currently investigated both in academia and industry. The challenges include the need for fast real-time gathering of relevant information, such as vehicle's location, moving direction, and speed, and instructing the vehicles in real-time to respect traffic policies according to the gathered information. In this work we present new algorithms to define platoons that are updated dynamically on the fly, allowing much better control over the traffic to gain efficiency. A platoon representative vehicle is chosen and the set of vehicles in the platoon is identified based on inductive distance criteria, that are continuously checked and considering the road graph topology and, updating the platoon memberships. In this paper, we present the main algorithms to identify and control the platoon and demonstrate this detection using a vehicle simulator.
