Abstract

Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) systems uses wireless connectivity to guarantee string stability for platooning, which Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) fails to provide. One of the constraints that hinders widespread adoption of CACC is that almost all developments and real validations have been done on strings of identical vehicles. This chapter summarizes the most recent efforts in the development of a generic control architecture that enables CACC on strings of vehicles of different makes/models/types, dynamics and powertrains. The developed hierarchical approach has demonstrated feasibility of CACC system on real vehicles, even at short time gaps. It is also robust in handling cut-in and cut-out maneuvers of other vehicles in public traffic.
