Developments in wireless communication and artificial intelligence technologies have shown potential for increasing road capacity with Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs). Researchers used a simulation-based approach to further explore the impact of CAVs on the operational performance of innovatively designed intersections known as superstreets or restricted crossing U-turn intersections, which have fewer conflict points than traditionally designed intersections. A superstreet network from Leland, North Carolina was modeled in the SUMO microsimulation platform using previously collected traffic volume data.
