Abstract

Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control aims to automate a truck longitudinally for following its predecessor at reduced following distances in order to minimize fuel consumption. Short inter vehicle distances can be realised by the use of Vehicle-To-Vehicle communication (V2V). This application should be operational safe, which means to prevent harm to personnel in hazardous situations in case the system is fully operational: the system should avoid collisions with other road participants and with the leading truck. This paper proposes to use V2V communication in a platoon to share information on surrounding traffic participants in order to predict possible hazardous traffic situations continuously, which could be used to ensure functional safety in case of V2V failure. In case these situations can be predicted in time, actions could be taken to avoid collisions.
