    The purpose of this three-year project is to develop an operational model of vehicle platoon dynamics under emergency conditions and to evaluate the platoon's dynamical behavior under non-nominal, or emergency, conditions. New platoon protocols and/or controller modifications will be formulated after analyzing the platoon response data in order to minimize damage to the platoon and the vehicles' occupants. This progress report discusses the results of the modeling phase of this work. A detailed literature review is included as Appendix B.
