This study developed a soft-link control system for electric light vehicles. The meaning of the soft-link control is that a vehicle automatically follows the preceding vehicle or the side vehicle with a very short inter-vehicle distance as if vehicles were mechanically connected. The soft-link control is expected to stretch the limitation of the light vehicles, because small capacity of the light vehicle is timely enlarged, resulting in giving a potential to apply them to more various purposes. In this study, the experimental vehicles are developed based on small electric vehicles and control algorithms arc designed. Precise inter-vehicle control is realized by sharing the sensor information and control information among constituent vehicles in a platoon and using the information in the controller. The experimental results show that the platooning of four vehicles in 2-by-2 and single-line formations with inter-vehicle distance of 30~50cm are realized by the proposed soft-link control.
