In our problem, trucks have fixed routes in a transportation network and can wait at hubs along their routes to form platoons with others while fulfilling the driving and rest time constraints.
To evaluate the effect of the pricing on the platooning system, we perform a simulation over the Swedish road network.
This paper considers the problem of hub-based platoon coordination for a large-scale transport system, where trucks have individual utility functions to optimize.
The vehicles wait at the hub, and a platoon coordinator, at each time-step, decides whether to release the vehicles from the hub in the form of a platoon or wait for more vehicles to arrive.
We show that the platoon coordination game is a potential game when the travel times are either deterministic or stochastic, and the vehicles decide on their waiting times at the beginning of their journeys.
