Project Details

Project Description: 

The project will examine the potential of ecoadaptive cruise control (eco-ACC) applications to improve environmental performance. A traffic simulation tool will be modified to model eco-ACC strategies, and research will be conducted to develop an effective algorithm for this application.

Goals

An Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) application of ecoadaptive cruise control using connected vehicle technologies can significantly improve environmental performance.
