Abstract [en]

Heavy-duty vehicle (HDV) platooning is a mean to significantly reduce the fuel consumption for the trailing vehicle. By driving close to the vehicle in front, the air drag is reduced tremendously. Due to each HDV being assigned with different transport missions, platoons will need to be frequently formed, merged, and split. Driving on the road requires interaction with surrounding traffic and road users, which will influence how well a platoon can be formed. In this paper, we study how traffic may affect a merging maneuver of two HDVs trying to form a platoon. We simulate this for different traffic densities and for different HDV speeds. Even on moderate traffic density, a platoon merge could be delayed with 20% compared to the ideal case with no traffic.
