Abstract: The focus of this work is to derive a technique of safety analysis for an automated freeway system. To demonstrate the method of safety analysis a procedure called fault tree analysis is applied. The specified freeway operates with vehicles in platoons. The safety criterion used here is that two or more simultaneous faults must occur independently before the hazards can arise.
