Platooning is a group of vehicles that drive in the same lane in a close  proximity aiming at improving road safety and traffic efficiency and reducing  fuel consumption. This application firstly relied on vehicular sensors to  calculate a minimal inter-vehicle distance, it has then been enhanced to  integrate wireless communication to communicate vehicular information and calculate a safe driving distance within the platoon. In the LINCS talks, I’ll go over different existing platooning algorithms and technologies in VANETs and discuss the importance of collaborative in-platooning decisions to protect the platoon from cyberattacks.
