Adaptive control of autonomous vehicle platoons
We study platoon control for autonomous vehicles, motivated by future intelligent transportation systems. Adaptive control laws are proposed to tackle the parameter uncertainties commonly seen in practice for the vehicular models. Control algorithms are proposed and shown to achieve the stability of the closed-loop vehicular system, the speed consensus for multiple autonomous vehicles in platoons, and the required safety spacing between each neighboring pair of vehicles asymptotically. The results are illustrated with numerical examples.
