This note is concerned with the selection of control parameters to ensure string stability of a vehicle convoy system, while satisfying constraints imposed by considerations of safety and passenger comfort. Several forms of control law are investigated, including single and multiple look-ahead strategies as well as bi-directional control. By considering simple models, typical conditions for achieving collision avoidance and jerk limitation, while maintaining stability, are derived
