Title: Merging Lanes - Fairness through Communication
Published: Vehicular Communications 1 Issue 2 (), pp. 97--104, Apr 2014
Abstract: The merging of two lanes is a common traffic scenario. In this paper we derive a formal model for the behavior of vehicles in this scenario. We discuss the question of how fairness of a merging process can be defined and introduce the notion of free-flow fairness. We first show how optimal fairness could be achieved if all vehicles were omniscient and willing to follow a given strategy. We then move to a more realistic setting, where only a subset of vehicles participates in our merging scheme and where wireless communication is limited and unreliable. By means of analysis and simulation we show that a simple beacon-based approach yields very good fairness even if only 1 % of the vehicles participate.
