Abstract:A platoon consists of several automated vehicles driving as one group on the road. Because of communication between cars and lack of human drivers that require time to react, the distance between vehicles can be decreased, improving traffic flow. One problem regarding platoons is the situation when a new vehicle wants to enter the highway. Space between vehicles is small, so the platoon has to make a gap for the merging vehicle, while the merging car has to arrive at the gap in the platoon at a specific time. The goal is to extend and improve a current model for platoons such that a new vehicle is able to merge into the platoon when it enters the highway.
