ProjectIntegration of optimal energy management in vehicle

Integration of optimal energy management in vehicle

The purpose of the project is to apply the latest findings in predictive energy management to control the powertrain and the auxillary vehicle systems. The goal is to the implement in a real truck an energy management algorithm that would take into account both kinetic buffer and vehicles auxillary system. The algorithm is expected to give 6-8% fuel savings compared to the vehicle without predictive energy management algorithms.

The project is financed by Vinnova (Diarienummer 2015-04842) and is coordinated by Volvo Technology AB.
