Using Information to Stretch Vehicle Efficiency

Full Text


Connectivity, even with low-level of automation, is being touted as the enabler for reaching higher safety and lower congestion in our transportation systems across the entire globe. In this presentation, I will highlight how load preview, through connectivity, can improve powertrain efficiency across many vehicle platforms (from light duty to eighteen-wheelers), type of powertrains (from electric to plug-in, from diesel to gasoline) and diverse terrains. I will also present how inconvenient realities like inaccurate or insufficient information in the control horizon can deteriorate the performance so much that fuel consumption and emissions can be worse than the baseline human-driven vehicle.
