Road vehicle automation will only improve traffic efficiency and decrease fuel consumption if control algorithms are designed to encompass cooperative behavior.

Research profile

Jeroen Ploeg is a part-time Associate Professor at the Dynamics and Control group of the Mechanical Engineering Department at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Jeroen’s research interest is in the field of control system design, with a focus on cooperative and automated road vehicles. Cooperative and automated driving is characterized by emergent behavior that results from the dynamics of the vehicle interaction rather than the dynamics of individual vehicles. One well-known phenomenon in this respect is string instability, resulting in so-called ghost traffic jams. The design of vehicle controllers for string-stable vehicle platoons has been the main line of Jeroen’s research in the past years, resulting in a rigorous understanding of the notion of string stability as well as multiple control solutions. As a next step, cooperative maneuvering is investigated, such as merging in a string of vehicles and intersection crossings, together with several PhD students.

Academic background

Jeroen Ploeg obtained his M.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering at Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, in 1988 and earned his Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering on the control of vehicle platoons from TU/e in 2014, under the supervision of Prof. Henk Nijmeijer and Prof. Nathan van de Wouw. In 2017, Jeroen was appointed Associate Professor (part time) at TU/e in the Dynamics and Control group of Prof. Nijmeijer at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.

Jeroen currently works at 2getthere, Utrecht, The Netherlands, where he leads the research and development activities in the field of cooperative automated driving for automated transit systems. From 1989 to 1999, he was employed at Tata Steel, IJmuiden, The Netherlands, where his interest was in the development and implementation of dynamic process control systems for large-scale industrial plants. He worked at TNO, Helmond, The Netherlands, from 1999 until 2017, ultimately as a Principal Scientist in the field of vehicle automation and road safety assessment.
