In this paper, we propose a new car-following model considering driver's timid and aggressive characteristics on a gradient highway. Based on the control theory, the linear stability analysis of the model was conducted. It shows that the stability of traffic flow on the gradient highway varies with the drivers' characteristics and the slope. Adopti...

In order to improve traffic efficiency and reduce fuel consumption and CO\(_{2}\) emission, most existing models are considered as an optimization problem. However, these models cannot provide a satisfactory solution when nonlinear time-varying system and external disturbances are investigated for connected vehicles in the vicinity of traffic signa...

Development of highly automated and intelligent vehicles can lead to the reduction of driver workload. However, it also causes the out-of-the-loop problem to drivers, which leaves drivers handicapped in their ability to take over manual operations in emergency situations. This contribution puts forth a new switched driving strategy to avoid some of...

... Milan é s et al. [25] proposed a car-following model that uses adaptive cruise control and cooperative adaptive cruise control technology, considering parameters such as the error between the headway and the expected headway, the headway error weight, the speed difference weight and the differential weight of the headway. For non-planar road scenarios, Sun et al. [26] proposed a suitable car-following model suitable that considers the driver's uncertainty characteristics. Li et al. [27] explored the effect of a two-sided lateral gap with uncertain velocity on the stability of the traffic flow on a curved road. ...
... These studies have focused on using the longitudinal dynamics of a vehicle to estimate the vehicle mass. Most current techniques for estimating vehicle mass rely on longitudinal and lateral vehicle dynamic models [4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12]. ...
... Because the vicinity of traffic signals can provide the functions such as gathering, steering and evacuation for traffic flows, the vehicles drive and stop periodically in this area with the change of traffic signals. It is easy to decline the performance of cooperative driving, reduce traffic efficiency, increase energy consumption and even lead to traffic accidents (such as rear-end collision) due to internal uncertainties, external perturbations, delays and other factors [27][28][29][30][31][32]. ...
