Safety Evaluation of System Failures in Formation and Separation Processes of Automatic Platooning of Trucks

In Energy-Saving Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Technology Project of Japan, a reliable automatic platooning of trucks is a main objective in highway transportation. The application of a driving simulator is useful to evaluate driving safety of the automatic platooning, and thus a new truck driving simulator was constructed to reproduce truck dynamics and control. A full-scale cabin of truck was integrated into the driving simulator. And a gap distance controller for longitudinal and lateral directions was designed for the automatic platooning. On the assumption of system failures in the processes of formation and separation of the automatic platooning, driver behaviors for the emergency avoidance in a following truck were studied in the driving experiment using the truck driving simulator.
