Greedy vs Centralized MPC for platooning
Have you seen a commercial of a train of cars traveling on a highway and keeping the same inter-vehicle distances and speeds? Yes! You think it is fun, comfortable and makes our trips easier and not nerve-racking. Guess what? It is more advantageous than what you think. Believe it or not, it can be a significant contribution to save the planet from the increasing atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide and a great deal for the economy as well! However, the latest control strategies proposed that varying the distances and speeds at hilly terrains could even save more fuel. Curious about how the control design will look like? Then you are in the right place.
