Wireless vehicle to vehicle communication in a vehicle platoon is proposed in intelligent transportation systems to increase safety of the transportation system and assist drivers for improved decision making. However, similar to any networked system, cooperative connected vehicles in a platoon are vulnerable to malfunction due to failures in network communication. In addition to the possible data corruption, sensor and actuator faults can have significant effects on the control strategy for cruise control. This paper considers a platoon of connected vehicles equipped with cooperative adaptive cruise control and presents a reconstructive method based on sliding mode observer to estimate and reconstruct the faults in the sensors and actuators of vehicles.
