Platooning Rear Vehicle Control Using Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication 2001-01-0802

A new concept for communication for platooning of leader-follower vehicles is presented. The leader vehicle is equipped by a omni directional camera and laser radar. The omni directional camera can capture a omni directional views and the view information is used to autonomously control the leader vehicle. The laser radar set to the rear part of the leader vehicle detects the relative distance and angle of the follower vehicle. By the information of the relative position and angle of the follower vehicle, control instructions are generated and sent via vehicle-to-vehicle communication between the leader vehicle and the follower vehicle.
