Autonomous vehicles are widely regarded as a promising technology to improve the safety of transportation systems. However, the efficiency of vehicles may be compromised to ensure safety when there are large uncertainties in perception and prediction of the behaviors of other road participants due to limitations in sensors. To remedy this problem, vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communication is applied to improve efficiency of autonomous vehicles during interactions with other vehicles. By requiring the vehicles to communicate their intentions with one another, the efficiency of the vehicles can be improved in terms of smaller variations in their speed profiles and smaller delay as demonstrated in the simulations.
