08.11.2018 - Coordination of Autonomous Vehicles at Traffic Junctions.
Theory and Experiments

Prof. Paolo Falcone
Department of Electrical Engineering
Chalmers University of Technology
Gothenburg, Sweden


Time & Place
The presentation on May 14, 2019 will be given in building 10, room 460 at the Otto-von-Guericke-University of Magdeburg and starts at 5.00 p.m..

The next challenge, beyond high-level autonomous driving, is the coordination of autonomous vehicles, which is expected to fully enable the potential of autonomous driving technologies and heavily impact the society. Nevertheless, the safety and performance issues arising from the tight coupling between information losses and delays and the control system stability and performance must be accounted for at the design stage. Starting from a multi-vehicle coordination problem at traffic junctions, which has been experimentally demonstrated relying on both the IEEE 802.11p wireless standard and a 5G cellular network prototype, we will motivate a joint communication and control paradigm, where a central coordinator decides upon control inputs to a set of dynamical systems and  their access to the communication channel. We will show a few results from numerical examples and new research directions.

Short CV
Paolo Falcone is Associate Professor in the Mechatronics research group. His research focuses on constrained optimal control and verification methods, applied to autonomous and semi-autonomous mobile systems, cooperative driving and intelligent vehicles. He is involved in a range of projects, in cooperation with industry, focusing on autonomous driving, cooperative driving and vehicle dynamics control. His teaching subjects include Model predictive control, Vehicle dynamics control and Modeling and simulation of dynamical systems.
