Context Presentation

The theme addressed in this PhD concerns autonomous and connected vehicles. It is essential, after making a vehicle more reliable, to study how several connected autonomous vehicles will be able to interact to maximize the behavior of the collective (fluidity, fuel consumption and pollution). The Society of American Automotive Engineers (SAE International) has defined 5 levels of autonomy: level 1, in which the driver performs all maneuvers, at level 5, in which the vehicle is completely autonomous and can do without driver and / or passenger.This PhD concerns both level 4 autonomous vehicles in which the vehicle drives and the supervised driver can regain control of driving, as well as level 5 vehicles (total autonomy of the vehicle).

In this PhD, the aim is to study how each vehicle communicates with its neighboring vehicles and how it behaves / reacts in response to the information provided by its neighborhood. A lock consists in determining the information that is relevant to communicate among all the data recovered from the numerous sensors scattered in the vehicle and effectors.
