There are still many controversies in the traffic flow field, mainly due to lack of traffic flow data. Controllable traffic flow experiments are expected to remarkably promote the development of traffic flow studies. We have carried out car-following experiment of a platoon with 25 vehicles. In each vehicle, a high precision GPS device has been installed to record the velocity and position of the vehicle. The car-following behaviors have been analyzed
