We investigate the use of large-scale Automated Highway Systems, also called one-dimensional vehicle platoons, as a practical traffic mitigation solution. We review recent theoretical results related to vehicle platooning and discuss their implications on the scalability and safety of large-scale platoons. We also quantify the performance of different platoon control strategies through simulations that use realistic models of vehicle dynamics and sensor accuracy.
