Confirmation seminar presented by Zhiwei Yang

Congestion, fuel consumption, and emissions are major costs of modern transportation systems, which impede sustainable development due to their enormous negative impact on mobility, economy, public health, and environment. Connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) provide unprecedented opportunities for optimising and precisely controlling vehicle motion to improve safety, efficiency, fuel consumption and emission as well as the riding comfort, based on information available through a vehicular communication network. This project aims to develop eco-driving strategies in a mixed traffic consisting of CAVs and human-driven vehicles (HVs) to improve both mobility and sustainability, with safety and comfort guaranteed.
