The simulation uses the different vehicle geometries that the SARTRE Project has established and the tests were selected according to the possible road train configurations we might use during our project. Figure 3. Safety simulation The system has been designed to have V2V communications that have a very small transmission delay, giving a very low system activation time (for steering, accelerating/braking) which translates into almost instantaneous reactions of the entire platoon. In the case of regular platooning situations, the road train systems are in charge of maintaining the specified performance.

1. The Mental Athlete Formal contests, or any competitive context, can provide motivation and a means for a technical staff to perform at very high levels of creativity on a very short time scale. These contests are common in academic circles and range from toothpick bridges, baking soda cars, and science fairs for the younger set, to high performance and fuel-efficient ground vehicles, concrete canoes, and energy and space efficient homes for those more learned. This approach to innovation is especially powerful when the team constituents are multi-disciplinary and blended from academics, OEM, suppliers, etc.

Inexpensive short distance ultrasonic sensors were sufficient to allow for a small, slow backup maneuver and to provide side sensing in very tight corridors. In an urban scenario, where sensing was required to support sideways maneuvers into alternate lanes, u-turns, intersection negotiation, and merging into oncoming traffic, sensing for a significant distance in all directions around the vehicle was required.
