### Abstract

Driving vehicles in platoons has the potential to improve trafficefficiency, increase safety, reduce fuel consumption, and make drivingexperience more enjoyable. A lot of effort is being spent in thedevelopment of technologies, like radars, enabling automated cruise controlfollowing and ensuring emergency braking if the driver does not react intime; but these technologies alone do not empower real platooning. Theinitial idea of building dedicated infrastructures for platoons, has beenset aside favoring the philosophy that foresees scenarios, where automatedvehicles share the road with human-driven ones. This arises interesting newquestions regarding the interactions between the two categories ofvehicles. In this paper we focus on the analysis of interferences caused bynon-automated vehicles during a Join maneuver. We define the applicationlayer protocol to support the maneuver, together with situations that canprevent successful termination, and describe how they can be detected. Thevalidity of the approach is proven by means of simulations, showing eitherthat the maneuver can successfully be performed, or safely be aborted.Finally, we analyze the impact of the Packet Error Rate on the failure rateof the maneuver, showing that packet losses mainly affect the maneuver froma coordination point of view, rather than stability of the system, i.e.,even at high loss rates, cars never violated a minimum safety distance.
