Title: On internal and external notions of string stability
Abstract: String stability is an important concept in the analysis and control of vehicle platoons (“strings”) as it prohibits the amplification of disturbances through the string. However, various - somewhat scattered - notions of string stability exist in the literature, ranging from stability-like properties of an equilibrium (internal) to performance-like properties (external). In this talk I will discuss some very preliminary ideas for linking such internal and external string stability properties by drawing inspiration from dissipativity theory.
