Abstract

The paper focuses on the design of a platoon control system with diverse vehicle formation. After a brief summary of the vehicle model and the control criteria, the paper demonstrates methods for eliminating the longitudinal oscillations caused by the communication and actuator delays and environmental disturbances. The realization and evaluation is done with diverse control strategies. These control methods are demonstrated in a vehicle simulation environment.
