dc.description.abstractThis project aims to analyze the potential of car platooning to improve the overall road system performance. The concept of platooning refers to the linking of vehicles through wireless technology in groups of cars that travel very close one after another in highways. The leading vehicle controls the speed and direction, whereas the following vehicles respond to the leader's movement. Grouping vehicles into platoons might increase road capacity by reducing headways, safety by removing human errors and cost savings by reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
