Pay to Change Lanes: A Lane-Changing Strategy for Connected/Automated Driving Using Cooperative Game Theory

This paper proposes a cooperative lane changing strategy using a transferable utility game's framework. This allows vehicles to engage in transactions where gaps in traffic are created in exchange for monetary compensation. Payoffs are calculated based on travel time differences and value of vehicle-travel-time (VOT). A cellular automaton is developed and utilized to perform numerical experiments that explore the impact of such transactions on traffic conditions (travel-time savings). The results show that cooperation between drivers can help achieve win-win results.
