Simulations for Predicting the Impacts of Autonomous and Connected Vehicles on the Transportation System: A Review

ABSTRACTAutonomous and connected vehicles (ACVs) will play a significant role in near future, and some autonomous vehicles are already driven on the road. The more autonomous vehicles are introduced, the more transportation systems will be affected. The literature has been quick to report the effects of ACVs based on simulation models, but it is uncertain what the effects might be in the future due to ACVs. This paper conjectures that existing simulations may not be enough to predict the effects of ACVs. The objective of this paper is to perform a critical literature review of the predicted impacts of ACVs with an emphasis on the foundations of the simulations used to reach conclusions. This paper reviews factors which are important in existing transportation systems and factors which should be incorporated into simulating the future transportation systems. The results of this study contribute to guiding future simulation applications for implementing ACVs.
