Information sharing among autonomous vehicles crossing an intersection

In this paper we compare the performance of autonomous vehicles at intersections with respect to the type of information shared. For this purpose we consider the cases where vehicles share or not information about their inertia and their intention at the intersection. An existing control method based on navigation functions is modified in order to take into account such information. The results show that if autonomous vehicles know each other’s inertia they achieve significantly smoother paths, use less fuel and more often avoid full stops
