This paper considers the problem of disturbance propagation in a string of vehicles, where each vehicle has access to the position error with respect to its preceding vehicle. In addition, the followers in the string may receive coded information sent by the leader over finite capacity side channels. A lower bound on the integral of the sensitivity function of the position errors with respect to a stochastic disturbance acting on the lead vehicle is presented. This bound depends on the open… CONTINUE READING
