Vehicular Platoon System Design: Fundamentals and Robustness provides a comprehensive introduction to connected and automated vehicular platoon system design. Platoons decrease the distances between cars or trucks using electronic, and possibly mechanical, coupling. This capability allows many cars or trucks to accelerate or brake simultaneously. It also allows for a closer headway between vehicles by eliminating reacting distance needed for human reaction. The book considers the key issues of robustness and cybersecurity, with optimization-based model predictive control schemes applied to control vehicle platoon.

In the controller design part, several practical problems, such as constraint handling, optimal control performance, robustness against disturbance, and resilience against cyberattacks are reviewed. In addition, the book provides detailed theoretical analysis of the stability of the platoon under different control schemes.
