Tomorrow, we will have our next Groningen-Lyon seminar which will be given by Carlo Cenedese. It will take place on Thursday, 17th June 2021, from 2pm until 3pm.
Title: Highway Traffic Control via Smart e-Mobility
Abstract: In this work, we study how to alleviate highway traffic congestion by encouraging plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles to stop at a charging station around peak congestion time. Specifically, we design a pricing policy to make the charging price dynamic and dependent on the traffic congestion, predicted via the cell transmission model, and the availability of charging spots. Furthermore, we develop a novel framework to model how this policy affects the drivers’ decisions by formulating a mixed integer potential game. Technically, we introduce the concept of “road-to-station (r2s) and “station-to-road” (s2r) flows and show that the selfish actions of the drivers converge to charging schedules that are individually optimal in the sense of Nash. Then, we validate the proposed strategy on a simulated highway stretch between The Hague and Rotterdam, in The Netherlands, and carefully analyze how the parameters involved influence the decision-making process.
