Evaluating Suitable Glosa-Algorithms by Simulation Considering Realistic Traffic Conditions and V2X-Communication


Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication allows infrastructure elements, e.g., traffic lights, to directly communicate with vehicles, thereby allowing services like Green Light Optimized Speed Advisory (GLOSA), Probe Vehicle Data (PVD), and Traffic Signal Priority Request (TSP). The idea behind GLOSA is to assist vehicles approaching an intersection with speed advices in order to fulfill a given objective, e.g., minimizing fuel usage, emissions and/or delay. In a prior work (Kloeppel et al., 2019), several GLOSA algorithms were examined and their fitness (in the form of CO2 emissions, fuel usage and delay) were evaluated under largely realistic conditions. This paper is an extension of the prior work and presents further examinations, which include a more detailed study on the behaviour of Diesel-powered vehicles when using the GLOSA algorithm of Stebbins et al. (2017) as well as a study considering fixed-time control coupled with intelligent vehicles.
