Description: According to the
Conference Board of Canada, Automated Vehicles (AV) will be the next disruptive
technology with a substantial reduction of annual road fatalities by more than
75%. Besides the obvious advantages of transportation security and goods/person
effective mobility, intelligent vehicle gives a unique opportunity to increase
the transportation energetic efficiency, specifically for electric/hybrid
Indeed, sensors involved in the vehicle safety during a motion can be
used to modulate efficiently the vehicle dynamic regarding energy consumption.
In addition, sensing and communication capabilities can significantly
contribute to the vehicle path planning and energy management so that the
global energy efficiency is increased. However, several challenges need to be
solved in order to unlock this promising technology.
This lecture will cover
the fundamental aspects of anticipating energy required during a short and along
trip with a low-carbon footprint vehicle. Recent advances in vehicle dynamics monitoring
as well as vehicle/navigation road interaction sensing will be discussed.
