Crossroads --- A Time-Sensitive Autonomous Intersection Management Technique

Abstract For autonomous vehicles, intelligent autonomous intersection management will be required for safe and efficient operation. In order to achieve safe operation despite uncertainties in vehicle trajectory, intersection management techniques must consider a safety buffer around the vehicles. For truly safe operation, an extra buffer space should be added to account for the network and computational delay caused by communication with the Intersection Manager (IM). However, modeling the worst-case computation and network delay as additional buffer around the vehicle degrades the throughput of the intersection. To avoid this problem, AIM, a popular state-of-the-art IM, adopts a query-based approach in which the vehicle requests to enter at a certa... (more)
