Abstract

The design and experimental implementation of a longitudinal control system for the operation of automated vehicles in platoons is presented. The control system on each vehicle is designed to have a hierarchical structure consisting of an upper level controller and a lower level controller. The design of safe intra-platoon maneuvers so as to allow any car in the platoon to exit by making a lane change is discussed. An extensive experimental results from the public National Automated Highway Systems Consortium (NAHSC) demonstration of automated highways conducted in August 1997 at San Diego, California are presented.
