Abstract:

In this report the authors examine the effect of lane changes on the benefits of adaptive cruise control (ACC). Using theory, simulations and experiments it is demonstrated that during lane changes, the smoothness of the ACC vehicle response attenuates the disturbances introduced by the cut -in or exiting vehicle in a way that is beneficial to the environment when compared with similar situations where the ACC vehicle is absent. The higher number of possible cut-ins that may be present due to the higher gaps created during high accelerations maneuvers by the vehicle in front of the ACC vehicle will not take away the benefits shown in the absence of such cut -ins when compared with the situation of similar maneuvers but with no cut-ins in the case of 100% manually driven vehicles.
