Simulation of Connected Autonomous Vehicles

Author: Christina Malliou Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) rely heavily on data received from their environment and their sensors. The information from the traffic lights or the roadside units (RSUs) allows to handle traffic scenarios, adapt routes, avoid congestion and enhance traffic efficiency or even reduce CO2 emission. Through their senso...
