Abstract: The performance analysis of vehicle following integrated control between the throttles and the brakes is important for platoon design. In this paper, we propose an integrated control within throttles and brakes for vehicle following systems. We assume that the control states of lead vehicle, such as throttles or brakes, can be transmitted to the following vehicles. Every following vehicle then determines the switching by the use of the lead state. Based on this switching policy, we derive a sufficient condition for individual vehicle stability. Furthermore, we study the platoon performance and then give conditions for avoiding slinky-effects. Simulations show that the proposed method can help achieve the platoon performance. © 1999 Taylor & Francis Ltd.
