A platooning system, in which vehicles follow a lead vehicle without the road infrastructure, by combining laser radar sensing systems and inter-vehicle communication and navigation system has been developed. Its tracks automatically the race line of a lead vehicle. The maximum of five vehicles including a lead vehicle with the minimum inter-vehicle distance of 2 meters ran at the maximum speed of 100km/h. The accuracy of tracking control was within ±30 cm for the longitudinal direction and ±15cm for the lateral direction.
