Abstract

Different from traditional intelligent transportation systems, vehicular platoon systems pay more attention to interactive communications of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-road (V2R). Both V2V and V2R communications in platoon have higher demands of real-time and active safety applications, where low-latency transmission and strong perception capability are the fundamental guarantee of platoon cooperation. This paper proposed a cooperative vehicular platoon system based on Zynq-7000 all programmable SoC architecture, in which six miniature vehicles are designed through Zynq modules for evaluating the platooning performance. We use the Vivado development kit to create the system architecture, and evaluate cooperative communication and coordinated control technology of the platoon. The test results show that the Zynq architecture can improve the real-time processing and information interaction performance of cooperative platoon systems.
