The purpose of this report is to document the development of a platoon collision model which can be used to study platoon collision dynamics under emergency situations. Based on previous studies, the vehicle model within the platoon is implemented with two bumpers which are developed to meet the realistic performance of a real bumper. Four control algorithms have been utilized to carry out the simulations.
