Implementation and evaluation of cooperative adaptive cruise control functionalities

This study summarises the implementation of software system architecture and relevant modules to enable cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) functionalities as an extension of adaptive cruise control (ACC), thereby leveraging the lessons learned from prototype ACC vehicle testing as well as ideas from prior research. These activities were conducted in the United States under a cooperative agreement between the Crash Avoidance Metrics Partners, LLC and the Federal Highway Administration. A key outcome of this project was to understand the implementation of advanced capabilities for the CACC algorithm in a very structured manner. With the introduction of each CACC module, the impacts on the behaviours of vehicles following in a string (or string stability) were quantified to establish potential performance enhancements to automated following systems.
