Visible to the public Behaviorally Compatible, Energy Efficient, and Network-Aware Vehicle Platooning Using Connected Vehicle Technology

By linking the transportation network to the communication grid, connected vehicle (CV) technology facilitates communication among vehicles, the infrastructure, and other road users. This connectivity is enabled through the Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) technology, and creates a synergistic effect that paints a more comprehensive picture of the transportation network than could be observed by each individual road user.
