Idea of vehicle platooning
The main objective of this project is to design a controller for a platoon of vehicles in order to optimize the traffic flow and reduce the fuel consumption. A platoon of vehicles can be seen as follows.
The main objective of this project is to:
- Study and understand the fundamental problem of string stability.
- Obtain and create a dynamic model for vehicle platoons and its associate parameters with traffic theory.
- Create and design a control strategy for the headway space and analyze its behavior.
- Compare and analyze the behavior of parameter setups for variations of the proposed control strategy
