Nowadays, there is an increasing societal demand for smart mobility solutions which can increase the throughput, comfort, and safety of driving on a road. As one of these solutions, vehicle following technologies like cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) are introduced. with the help of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication, CACC can reduce the safe minimal inter-vehicular distance. Additionally, sharing the vehicle intentions through V2V, enables multi-vehicle maneuvers to be cooperatively executable. In this paper, using the concept of artificial potential fields, a longitudinal control scheme for performing a cooperative merging maneuver will be suggested. Artificial potential fields are powerful enough for modeling and solving such a complex problem, where in addition to vehicle following other objectives such as merging should be addressed. The designed algorithms for vehicle cooperative maneuvering are verified through simulations.
