Cooperative Driving in Mixed Traffic with Heterogeneous Communications and Cloud Infrastructure
In this paper we introduce an Intelligent Transport System (ITS), designed for enabling cooperative drivingmanoeuvres in mixed traffic scenarios considering heterogeneous communications and cloud infrastructuresystems. We present an architecture that enables connected vehicles to access ITS services independent oftheir underlying communication technology. This is achieved by introducing a large scale communicationsystem including the road-side infrastructure as well as a heterogeneous cloud. We present insights from theAutomated Connected Vehicle (ACV) concept and examine human factors elaborating on the experience oftwo aspects: driving in an ACV as well as driving in a Non-Automated Connected Vehicle (NACV), interactingwith an ACV. Furthermore, we present insights of initial demonstrations, emphasizing that the system workswell in real traffic scenarios.
