We have studied several scenarios that may happen within a platoon and affect its efficiency. Studying those scenarios and potential issues is to find an appropriate design that solve those issues and striving to an optimal efficient platoon. By reviewing the current autonomous vehicles and the technologies that provide, we cloud design a model that solve all issues relying on some mechanisms and rules that vehicles can follow and apply. Key Words – cloud network, route-based, cloud platoon.
