strategy for homogeneous platoon systems with external
disturbances under random packet drop scenario which can
occur due to underlying network among the vehicles in a
platoon. An linear matrix inequality (LMI) based approach is
used to obtain the controller gains for ensuring the stability with bounded H? norm for such systems. Effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated with numerical results considering different network topologies in a platoon under single packet drop. The variation of H? norm bound for different number of platoon members under the different structure of network topologies and the packet drop has been studied in this paper.
