Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) targets to streamline the vehicle operation, also assist driver with various safety, on board, and surrounding information. On highway grouping of vehicles forms a Platoon. Vehicular Ad hoc Network (VANET) enables Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communication that helps to increase the performance of platoon. Platoon helps to improve road capacity, more comfortable and safe driving, reduce in emissions. In previous year the most of the research is done on string stability analysis, latency, and data dissemination. The control of position, speed, and acceleration to the preceding vehicle in platoon is referred as longitudinal control. This work focus on the basic and mini platoon control design strategy. The design is proposed with Ad hoc demand distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol, used for application of platoon the new developed algorithm Distributed platoon system (DPTS) is proposed. The comparative study of strategy based on parameters like Packet delivery ratio (PDR), Throughput, Routing Overhead, End-to-end (e2e) delay. Traffic disturbance scenario for failure of vehicle in platoon is developed.
