This paper presents a setup for cooperative adaptive cruise control for which feasibility of the actual implementation is one of the main objectives. The approach considers communication with the directly preceding vehicle only, can deal with heterogeneous traffic, accounts for communication delay, and enables graceful degradation to standard adaptive cruise control if communication fails. The stability of a string of vehicles is analyzed using a frequency-domain approach.
