1. A platooning controller comprising:
a processor configured to share information about a first platooning vehicle of a group of platooning vehicles with other platooning vehicles of the group of platooning vehicles when a brake of the first platooning vehicle breaks down during platooning and to perform braking control; and
a non-transitory storage medium configured to store data and an algorithm for platooning and braking control by the processor,
wherein, to perform the braking control, the processor is configured to execute the algorithm to rearrange the group of platooning vehicles depending on a location where the first platooning vehicle is arranged in a platoon line so that a second platooning vehicle is arranged in front of the first platooning vehicle, to decelerate the first platooning vehicle and the second platooning vehicle that is in front of the first platooning vehicle, and to center the first platooning vehicle and the second platooning vehicle that is in front of the first platooning vehicle.
