The paper focuses on the design of a platoon control system which takes into consideration the knowledge of the inclinations of the road and the speed limits along the route of the platoon. By choosing the velocity of the platoon fitting in with the inclinations of the road the number of unnecessary accelerations and brakings can be reduced. In the control design of the platoon systems a balance between energy reduction and travelling time must be achieved. The control design is based on a parameter-dependent LPV method, which guarantees both disturbance attenuation and robustness against uncertainties.
