Abstract

Real-time Internet of Things (IoT) applications have stringent delay requirements when implemented over distributed sensing and communication networks in smart traffic control. They require the system to reach a permissible neighbourhood of an optimum solution with a tolerable delay. The performance of such applications mostly depends on the delay introduced by the underlying optimization algorithms, with the localized computational capability. In this paper, we study a smart traffic control scenario-a real-time IoT application, where a group of autonomous vehicles independently decide on their lane velocities, in collaboration with road-side units to efficiently utilize intersections with m..
