In platooning multiple vehicles are organized in convoys driving autonomously with a minimized safety gap. In order to support the global deployment of platooning, an integrated multi-brand approach is required. The European HORIZON 2020 project ENSEMBLE tries to address this issue by unifying and standardizing platooning within Europe. To this end, ENSEMBLE published a new communication protocol and within proposed a concrete implementation of communication for truck platooning in Europe. We conduct an extensive simulation study of the proposed communication protocol, showing that the protocol, even with packet loss, works reliable in all tested scenarios and guarantees a certain level of road safety. Considering the protocol performance from the application layer perspective, we evaluate how effective the protocol fulfills the requirements of the controller. By doing that, we additionally provide a key performance indicator to measure how well the protocol ensures constant information flow. That can be used to determine whether a different controller would be reliable with the proposed communication protocol.
