Abstract

Autonomous vehicles and platooning enhance productivity and present new opportunities and competitive advantages in the transportation industry. Platooning concept involves a group of vehicles acting as a single unit through coordination of movements. While Platooning as an evolving trend in mobility and transportation diminishes the individual and manual driving concerns, it creates new risks. New technologies and passengers’ safety and security further complicate matters and make platooning attractive target for the malicious minds. Threats and their potential impacts on vehicular platooning should be identified in order to protect the system against security risks. In this note, we show the range of the disruption that malicious insider and outsider can cause to the platoon. The insider attacker follows the normal control law of the platoon before it stArts the attack. This type of attack is implemented through control law modification, where the attacker maliciously misconfigures its controller. Outsider attacker is a non-platoon member who attempts to disrupt platoon. While the intruder can impact the other vehicles’ motions using its movement, it is not affected by other vehicles in the platoon. Outsider attack happens when attacker joins platoon deceitfully and tries to affect the platoon via its acceleration and deceleration. We demonstrate impacts of each attack on the platoon and discuss which type of attack poses the higher risks and results in the more catastrophic impacts.
