DISTURBANCE PROPAGATION IN LARGE INTERCONNECTED SYSTEMS

This paper focuses on the control of vehicles in a platoon. It determines that a control structure where each vehicle uses only information about its predecessor is fundamentally sensitive to disturbance. It is shown that small disturbances acting on one vehicle can propagate and have a large effect on another vehicle.
