Abstract

The paper focuses on the design of a platoon control system which takes into consideration safe travel by using the string stability theorem and the knowledge of the inclinations of the road along the route of the platoon. By choosing the velocity of the platoon fitting in with the inclinations of the road the number of unnecessary accelerations and brakings can be reduced, thus so can the operations of the actuators of the vehicles, i.e. the driveline and the brake system. Although the longitudinal dynamics of the vehicles is formulated in a linear control-oriented model, the non-linear performance of the predicted road inclinations and safety requirements based on the string stability are taken into consideration. The design of the platoon control is based on the Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) control theory.
