Cooperative Platooning (Co-VP) depend enormously on their communication capacity, since the information exchanged between vehicles and infrastructure ensures the correct execution of the device’s trajectories in most diverse scenarios. In this way, the monitoring of quality of service (QoS) plays a fundamental role in guaranteeing the system’s safety, providing local controllers with information so that defensive actions can be taken in a timely manner when the network start to fails. In this work, we introduce the concept of a Real Time QoS Monitor (RTQM) module that can be added to devices that are part of a Co-VP application. The RTQM module performs a link quality estimation (LQE), based on the packet inter-reception time, received signal strength Indication (RSSI) and current vehicles distance. The RTQM will provide information to the local Co-VP controller allowing safety actions and enabling the network handover between different communication standards, namely between ETSI ITS-G5 and C-V2X standards.
