This report concentrates on a velocity advisory tool, or decision support system, for vehicles approaching an intersection using communication capabilities between the infrastructure and vehicles. The system uses available signal change information, vehicle characteristics, lead vehicle characteristics, and intersection features to compute the fuel-optimal vehicle trajectory. The proposed system involves a complex optimization logic incorporating roadway characteristics, lead vehicle information, vehicle acceleration capabilities and microscopic fuel consumption models to generate a fuel-optimal speed profile. The research also develops a MATLAB application in order to demonstrate the potential of an in-vehicle application of such a technology.
