Julian Heinovski, Dominik S. Buse and Falko Dressler, "Scalable Simulation of Platoon Formation Maneuvers with PlaFoSim," Proceedings of 13th IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC 2021), Poster Session, Virtual Conference, November 2021, pp. 137–138.


Platooning is one of the most challenging applications of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). While the microscopic control of vehicles in a platoon can already be simulated quite accurately, the scalable simulation of maneuvers and platoon formation is still challenging. To bridge this gap, we propose PlaFoSim, a tool for simulation of platoon formation in large-scale freeway scenarios. PlaFoSim aims to facilitate and accelerate the research of platoon maneuvers and formation - new algorithms can easily be integrated using Python modules. We illustrate the capabilities of PlaFoSim and also showcase its scalability in a large-scale simulation setup.
