In this paper we present a protocol that controls semi-automated autonomous vehicles driving on a multiple merge junction highway. The protocol is distributed and controls both the merging (the vehicle is in the merge lane) and the yielding (the vehicle is in the main lane). We show a simulation study that presents the protocol and what impacts it has on safety and congestion under different conditions.
