The deployment of vehicle platoons on highways and the higher road network constitutes a viable solution towards more efficient transportation. The basic principle of such platoons is rather simple: One leading vehicle is responsible for steering control, whereas the preceding vehicles simply follow that leader. There exist different solutions for implementing this follow-the-leader concept. The microscopic traffic simulator TraffSim, which has been used in a variety of previous projects in the context of traffic simulation, has already been extended by a platooning model to simulate different scenarios for platooning. These scenarios comprise e.g. creating, joining or leaving a platoon.
