U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) to Host Webinar on Energy-Efficient Adaptive Cruise Control for Electric Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
The USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Professional Capacity Building (PCB) Program will host a free Talking Technology and Transportation (T3e) webinar on energy-efficient adaptive cruise control for electric connected and autonomous vehicles. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, March 8, 2018, from 1:00 to 2:00 pm EST.
This T3e webinar explores an energy-efficient adaptive cruise control, called Energy-Efficient Electric Driving Model (E3DM), for electric, connected, and autonomous vehicles (e-CAVs) in a traffic stream with mixed autonomous and human-driven vehicles. E3DM can maintain high energy efficiency of regenerative braking by adjusting the spacing between the leading and the following vehicles. Moreover, a power-based energy consumption model is proposed to estimate the on-road energy consumption for battery electric vehicles, considering the impact of ambient temperature on auxiliary load.
The webinar will discuss:
- What is energy-efficient adaptive cruise control for CAVs
- The energy consumption characteristics of battery electric vehicles
- How e-CAVs affect energy efficiency of a platoon.
