Toward Platoon-Aware Retiming of Traffic Lights in a Smart City

ByDan C. Marinescu, Ryan Florin, Stephan Olariu

This chapter promotes the vision of PaTras—a cyber-physical system for platoon-aware traffic light rescheduling in the smart cities (SCs) of tomorrow. PaTras will enhance urban mobility by exploring methods and management strategies that increase system efficiency and improve individual mobility through information sharing, avoid congestion of key transportation corridors through cooperative navigation systems, and handle nonrecurring congestion.
