Meet Mariló: Igniting the future of CAV platooning

As a PhD candidate in traffic engineering at the University of Florida, Mariló Martín-Gasulla ignites the future of CAV platooning. She investigates how the throughput of vehicles recovers, as the penetration rate of CAVs increases. Together with her colleagues, she has developed a simplified network to prove the reduction in throughput for lower penetration rates and analysed which percentage of CAVs is necessary for it to recover again. The calculations are based on a function of the headway kept between CAVs and human-driven vehicles. Read Mariló’s story.

Meet more heroes championing safety, efficiency and sustainability:

“Conducting case studies from three cities in Utah, USA, we were able to show that better street connectivity is the key – to less travel time and delays, and increased accessibility and safety.”
