Abstract

The paper investigates the possibility of using macroscopic information to improve control performance of a vehicular platoon composed of autonomous vehicles. A mesoscopic traffic modeling framework is proposed, and closed loop String Stability is achieved by exploiting Input-to-State Stability (ISS) for the analysis of the platoon. Examples of mesoscopic control laws are illustrated and simulations show the effectiveness of our approach in ensuring String Stability and improving the platoon behavior.
