Intelligent Transportation Systems are becoming increasingly relevant in the current and future social and mobility aspects, since they apply information, communication, and sensor technologies to vehicles and transportation infrastructure. They provide real-time information for road users and transportation system operators enabling better and more informed and efficient decisions. This technology can be used to manage road traffic in order to reduce congestion, increase the efficiency of existing transport infrastructure and improve mobility. Although this technology might be the powerhouse of cooperative autonomous driving, as others matters, there are still safety concerns to be managed. Thus, it is fundamental to include safety mechanism to assure the required safety level for these systems. Currently, research in cooperative autonomous systems usually conducted over simulation frameworks as real experiments are still too costly. A good solution for this problem is to rely on robotic platforms since they are cheaper and replicate with similar functionality real vehicles. In this line, this Thesis focuses on developing a platooning robotic testbed platform with a 1/10 scale robotic vehicles. To prove it's efectiveness, we validate a cooperative safety mechanism for platooning.
