In the pursuit of greater vehicle fleet efficiency, Predictive Optimal Energy Management Systems (POEMS) enabled Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) have shown promising theoretical results. In order to enable the practical development of POEMS enabled PHEV technology, if must first be determined what method and what data is needed is for providing optimal predictions. Research performed at Colorado State University and partner institutions in 2019 and 2020 pursued a novel course in considering the widest range of possible data and methods of prediction currently available including a survey of all feasible Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I), Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V), Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and Ego vehicle CAN data streams with classical and novel machine learning methods. Real world vehicle operation data was collected in Fort Collins Colorado, processed, and used in the development of optimal prediction methods. From the results of this research, concrete conclusions on the relative value of V2I, V2V, and ADAS information for prediction, and high fidelity predictions were obtained for 10 second horizons using specialized Artificial Neural Networks.
