In order to solve problems of traffic saturation in cities, new alternative” Urban Transportation Systems” are based on electric vehicles in free-access. One necessary functionality of such systems is their ability to move in a platoon fashion. Platooning of these automatic guided vehicles, relying on RTK-GPS sensors and inter-vehicles communication, is addressed in this paper. More precisely, vehicles platoon is expected to follow a curved reference path. Relying on nonlinear control theory… CONTINUE READING
