Cooperative Cyber-Physical Devices (Co-CPS) are reaching into the most diverse areas and pose new integration challenges. This is particularly true between cooperative autonomous machines, where safety and reliability must often be guaranteed without human presence.
Among these scenarios, Cooperative Vehicular Platooning (Co-VP) applications present an exciting promise: improving road occupation, reducing accidents, and providing fuel savings. However, due to their high complexity and safety-critical characteristics, these applications must be validated to ensure their reliability before being applied in real scenarios, particularly regarding their underlying communication transactions.
This paper presents an architecture for validating a Co-VP system via Hardware In the Loop (HIL) integration of IEEE 802.11 communications, and co-simulation support of a 3D simulator. We propose a use case with one scenario of communication profile according to the ETSI IT-G5 model and information exchange frequencies between the vehicles. Through these scenarios that mimic realistic conditions of Co-VP applications, we observe the impacts of such variations on the number of messages, network delays, and lateral and longitudinal platoon errors.
