Lateral control of vehicle platoons
Paper i proceeding, 2013

Vehicle platoons are fully automated vehicles driving in close proximity of each other, where both distance keeping and steering is under automatic control. This paper is aiming at a variant of vehicle platoons, where the lateral control is using forward looking sensors, i.e. camera, radar. Such a system solution implies that the vehicle dynamics are coupled together laterally, in contrast to the classical look-down solutions. For such a platoon, lateral string stability is an important property that the controller needs to guarantee. This article proposes a method for designing such a distributed controller. It also examines the effect of model uncertainties on the lateral string stability of the platoon for the proposed method.
