The root locus method: application to linear stability analysis and design of cooperative car-following models
Sau, Jacques, Monteil, Julien, Billot, Romain, & El Faouzi, Nour-Eddin (2014) The root locus method: application to linear stability analysis and design of cooperative car-following models. Transportmetrica B: Transport Dynamics, 2(1), pp. 60-82.
A global framework for linear stability analyses of traffic models, based on the dispersion relation root locus method, is presented and is applied taking the example of a broad class of car-following (CF) models. This approach is able to analyse all aspects of the dynamics: long waves and short wave behaviours, phase velocities and stability features. The methodology is applied to investigate the potential benefits of connected vehicles, i.e. V2V communication enabling a vehicle to send and receive information to and from surrounding vehicles. We choose to focus on the design of the coefficients of cooperation which weights the information from downstream vehicles. The coefficients tuning is performed and different ways of implementing an efficient cooperative strategy are discussed. Hence, this paper brings design methods in order to obtain robust stability of traffic models, with application on cooperative CF models
