Steering into the Future of Connected and Automated Vehicles

Reprinted from UCR News

Ziran Wang, recent mechanical engineering Ph.D. graduate, and Xishun Liao, electrical and computer engineering Ph.D. student, built an immersive driving simulation platform that develops a cooperative ramp merging system. Highway on-ramp merging has been linked to traffic congestion. Drivers along the on-ramp adjust vehicle speeds and positions to enter the highway, while drivers on the highway accommodate vehicle speeds and positions to avoid collision with merging vehicles from the on-ramp, heavily affecting upstream traffic flows.
