Energy-efficient driving in a dynamic environment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Although researchers and engineers have been investigating the topic of energy-efficient driving for more than a decade, they have not yet paid significant attention to surrounding traffic participants as a constraint and overtaking
possibility. Neglecting these constraints when generating an energy-optimised speed trajectory may lead to trajectories which are unattainable in real driving situations, and may eventually result in greater energy consumption and lower
driver acceptance. VIRTUAL VEHICLE has developed a method for planning energy-efficient driving of (semi)autonomous electric vehicles operating in a dynamic environment while also taking other traffic participants into account.
