This thesis proposes a unique adaptation of blockchain technology in information exchanges among various vehicle members traveling in a platoon. The main aim is to protect the privacy and security of platoon members while providing a quick sharing of telemetry data. A database schema is used alongside the proposed algorithm. To improve platoon security, blockchain cryptography is applied. The researcher has identified major protocols for a cryptographic authentication among vehicles travelling within a platoon. The algorithm of integrity and authentication is therefore proposed. The work gives consideration of the types of cyber-attack on platoons and their proposed remedies.
