Summary Information

This paper examined the use of platoon-based multi-agent intersection management systems to improve overall network performance in terms of mobility and environmental sustainability. Using connected vehicle technologies the proposed system would allow vehicle agents to communicate and form platoons when needed to increase signal system efficiency.
