Abrégé

An autonomous vehicle includes a vehicle body, a drive mechanism configured to propel the vehicle body, a location module, a communication interface in communication with a traffic control system, and a processing unit in communication with the drive mechanism, the location module, and the communication interface. The processing unit is configured to receive, via the communication interface, a route of a prioritized vehicle and determine, in conjunction with the location module, whether a route of the autonomous vehicle intersects the route of the prioritized vehicle. The processing unit is configured to adjust, using the drive mechanism, one or more of a direction or a speed of the autonomous vehicle based on the determination.
