Julian Heinovski, "Platoon Formation: Car-to-Platoon Assignments for Individual Cars," Proceedings of International Conference on Networked Systems (NetSys 2019), PhD Forum, Munich, Germany, March 2019.


Platooning (i.e., Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC)) brings several benefits such as improved traffic flows, fuel savings and safety for the driver. Its technical feasibility and string stable operation on freeways has been shown in simulations and field tests. Many studies consider given platoons, thus, one of the next challenges is platoon formation, where individually driving cars have to be assigned to platoons. Different algorithms for platoon formation have been proposed, assigning cars to platoons at entrance ramps as well as on the freeway. Many approaches using distributed ad-hoc strategies are trying to optimize macroscopic platooning metrics such as lane capacity and traffic flows. In this PhD project, I want to research algorithms for car-to-platoon assignments which consider properties and capabilities of individual cars and produce solutions optimized regarding microscopic interests (e.g., of the drivers).
