Platooning, the act of a car autonomously following its leaders to form a road train, is a hot topic in research. It has the potential to improve traffic flow on freeways, improve safety, and enhance the driving experience. A lot of effort has been put in several projects in order to implement and test systems capable of performing close car following. While the problems related to control theory seems to be solved, some questions regarding communication are still open. Wireless networking is fundamental for this application, as it is needed to manage and maintain the platoons and, clearly, has strict requirements in terms of frequency update and delay constraints. This paper surveys the literature about platooning systems and related research, identifies some open challenges, presents a simulation framework which can be used to tackle them, and outlines promising approaches.
