Title: Connected and Automated Vehicle Concept Dimensions and Examples DOE SMART Mobility, Task 7A1.1

Abstract

This paper defines the range of connected and automated vehicle (CAV) concepts that could be considered for analysis under the DOE SMART Mobility program. The CAV alternatives are very diverse and sometimes confusing to people who do not work with them regularly, so it is important to have clear descriptions to facilitate communication and understanding. It is also important to apply standard terminology so that people studying these concepts can understand each other clearly and avoid misunderstandings based on frequently-used but imprecise and misleading terminology (such as “driverless”, “self-driving” and “autonomous”). Finally, in a program as broad as SMART Mobility there is value in identifying a limited set of use cases that can serve as the bases for analyses in different laboratories and different pillars so that the results of the analyses can be compared on an “apples to apples” basis. This paper has two parts. In the first part, the dimensions of the CAV space are defined to give an indication of the breadth of the alternatives and the potential for dimensional explosion if all combinations of alternatives were to be considered for serious study. In the second part, a limited set of representative use cases are defined andmore » recommended to serve as the basis for subsequent analyses. These are provided to stimulate discussion that can hopefully lead to convergence on a common set of use cases that can unify the SMART Mobility analyses.« less
