Abstract

In the recent past, platooning evolved into an attractive cooperative driving technology, broadly discussed in research and practice. Vehicles in platoons use cooperative adaptive cruise control to drive at close distances to each other. Platooning (i) increases the capacity of the street by a factor of 2; (ii) reduces the fuel consumption and emissions by up to 20\%; and (iii) has social implications as it increases driver comfort and safety. As platooning research progresses, platooning coordination becomes a major research focus. The coordination of platoons, including the assignment of vehicles to platoons, the management of inter- and intra-platoon interactions, and the coordination of interactions with other vehicles is an important step towards an effective usage of platooning in practice. Based on a literature review of 1,600 papers, this survey provides an overview of state of the art in platooning coordination research for both cars and trucks. In this paper, we present a novel taxonomy for platooning coordination and classify existing approaches. We use the results of the literature review to discuss challenges and outline avenues for future work such as multi-objectiveness and individualisation.
