Enabling predictive energy management in vehicles
Widespread automobile usage provides economic and societal benefits but combustion engine powered automobiles have significant economic, environmental, and human health costs. Recent research has shown that these costs can be reduced by increasing fuel economy through optimal energy management. A globally optimal energy management strategy requires perfect prediction of an entire drive cycle but can improve fuel economy by up to 30\%. This dissertation focuses on bridging the gap between this important research finding and implementation of predictive energy management in modern vehicles. A ...
