Abstract

In this paper, a heterogeneous vehicle platoon equipped with Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) systems is studied. First, various causes of heterogeneity are reviewed. A selection of parameters is made, for which string stability is analyzed. The influence of controller parameters and headway time on string stability is studied. Numerical simulation results provide guidelines on how to choose controller parameters and headway time for different vehicles using CACC.
