Large steps are being taken by the industry and R&D organizations in automated driving technology development, as well as in setting up appropriate scenario-based safety assessment methods. In this paper a concept framework is proposed for a very specific group of vehicles: trucks in a platoon enabled by vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication. The basis is formed by previously proposed scenario-based assessment methods for individual automated driving vehicles. These methods however do not

It is shown how V2V communication interconnects vehicles in a system-of-systems, and how to include V2V communication in the scenario description. The paper also provides a vision to answer the basic question whether safety assessment should consider the platoon as a whole, or the individual vehicle in the platoon.
