  author={Ravi Rajamani and Seibum B. Choi and J. Karl Hedrick and Patricia L Kretz},
This paper presents the design and experimental implementation of a longitudinal co system for the operation of automated vehicles in platoons. The control system on vehicle is designed to have a hierarchical structure and consists of an upper level troller and a lower level controller. The upper controller determines the desired ac eration for each vehicle in the platoon so as to maintain safe string-stable operation at very small intervehicle spacing. The lower controller utilizes vehicle… CONTINUE READING
