favorite8The computation of the speed profile is accomplished by solving a receding horizon control problem that includes the dynamics and corresponding constraints of each vehicle and minimizes a cost function depending on the fuel consumption of the whole platoon.
favorite9Freight transport system architecture The freight transportation system discussed in this paper integrates potentially thousands of heavy-duty vehicles into a large-scale planning, cooperation, and real-time optimization and automation system.
favorite9In this paper, we present a cyber-physical approach to the control and coordination of a large fleet of heavy-duty vehicles that exploits the benefits of platooning, see Figure 2.
favorite16It is also illustrated how well the proposed cooperative look-ahead controller for heavy-duty vehicle platoons manages to optimize the velocity profiles of the vehicles over a hilly segment of the considered road network..
favorite3In this paper, we review how modern information and communication technology supports a cyber-physical transportation system architecture with an integrated logistic system coordinating fleets of trucks traveling together in vehicle platoons.
