Safe Platooning In Automated Highway Systems

Luis Alvarez and Roberto Horowitz

Institute of Transportation Studies, Research Reports, Working Papers, Proceedings from Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Berkeley

Abstract: This report addresses the problem of designing safe controllers for the hybrid system composed by the interaction of the regulation and coordination layers in the hierarchical California PATH Automated Highway System (AHS) architecture. Conditions to achieve safe platooning under normal mode of operation are investigated. The results that are obtained allow for the decoupling of the design and verification of the regulation and coordination layers in the PATH AHS architecture.
