Local Graph-based Distributed Control for Safe Highway Platooning

Using graph theory, this paper investigates how a group of vehicles, endowed with local positioning capabilities (range and bearing to other vehicles), can keep a predefined formation. We propose a longitudinal and lateral controller that stabilizes a system of several vehicles as well as a collision avoidance mechanism. The stability of our approach is supported by a mathematical analysis as well as realistic simulations.
