In this paper, a case study of the difficulties encountered in the design of hierarchical, hybrid control systems is presented. The Intelligent Vehicle Highway System (IVHS) architecture proposed for vehicle platooning is used as an example. The authors conclude that the conventional tools currently is use for the design and verification of control systems may be inadequate for the design of hierarchical controllers for hybrid systems. The analysis, while indicating certain shortcomings of the current IVHS design, also contains proposed solutions to these problems.
