Vehicular Platooning corresponds to a technique of optimizing the usage of limited resources such as road networks, fossil fuels, electricity and drivers time, among others, via the networked coordination and/or automation of vehicles. Although modern vehicles are equipped with certain levels of automation, the theory behind a multi-agent system such as a platoon of vehicles is not yet finished. Stability, String Stability and Performance are the most important theoretical concepts (from a mathematical point of view) to study in formation control motivated problems. They relate to the efficiency and safety of the systems and are commonly studied through a set of differential equations that model the interconnection of an arbitrary number of vehicles.

About the speaker:
Andrés Peters was born in Coyhaique, Chile, in 1983. He obtained his Ingeniero Civil Electrónico
and Magíster en Igeniería Electrónica degrees from the Universidad Técnica Federico
Santa María of Valparaíso, Chile in 2007 and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the Hamilton Insitute at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, Ireland in 2015. His research interests include performance bounds for optimal control of linear systems and string stability in formation control of vehicle platoons. He joined the Advanced Center for Electrical and Electronic Engineering, UTFSM, in October 2015.
