Convoy platooning using vehicle to vehicle communication
Author: Švandrlík Michal
This thesis topic is to study the impact of vehicle to vehicle communication (V2V) used for convoy platooning control and its performance in a traffic. The main goal of V2V communication is increasing safety of traffic by sharing position, velocity and other useful information. It also aims to prevent from traffic jams and reduce the number of accidents. Our task is to evaluate the influence of convoy control via V2V under different conditions and performing maneuvers like acceleration, deceleration and zipper. The metrics like V2V technology penetration, convoy length and traffic density are taken into account. The experiments are realized via computer simulation.
