Autonomous vehicles have a lot of potential in improving people’s everyday lives. They could reduce congestion, reduce collisions, enhance mobility, and more. But with these benefits come security and privacy risks. In order to research and test some of these risks, we are building a set of scale autonomous cars that can model autonomous and collaborative behaviors. One such behaviour would be platooning, where a group of vehicles can travel closely together at high speeds by following a lead car. We are doing this with various sensors and control algorithms to allow for future modularity.
