  1. 1. Look-ahead control for fuel-efficient and safe heavy-duty vehicle platooning

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Valerio Turri; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; platoon; platooning; optimization; optimal control; model predictive control; automatic control; fuel efficiency; intelligent transport systems; automated driving; cooperative; dynamic programming; trucks; heavy-duty vehicles; safe platooning; fuel-efficient platooning; distributed model predictive control; MPC; vehicle-following; pulse and glide; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : The operation of heavy-duty vehicles at small inter-vehicular distances, known as platoons, lowers the aerodynamic drag and, therefore, reduces fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Tests conducted on flat roads have shown the potential of platooning to reduce the fuel consumption of about 10%. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fuel-Efficient Heavy-Duty Vehicle Platooning

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Assad Alam; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Platooning; Heavy-Duty Vehicle; Optimal Control; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The freight transport industry faces big challenges as the demand for transport and fuel prices are steadily increasing, whereas the environmental impact needs to be significantly reduced. Heavy-duty vehicle (HDV) platooning is a promising technology for a sustainable transportation system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fuel-efficient and safe heavy-duty vehicle platooning through look-ahead control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Valerio Turri; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; platooning; eco-driving; look-ahead control; dynamic programming; distributed model predictive control; optimal control; autonomous vehicles; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : The operation of groups of heavy-duty vehicles at small inter-vehicular distances, known as platoons, lowers the overall aerodynamic drag and, therefore, reduces fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Experimental tests conducted on a flat road and without traffic have shown that platooning has the potential to reduce the fuel consumption up to 10%. READ MORE

  4. 4. Coordination of Heavy-Duty Vehicle Platooning

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sebastian van de Hoef; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; road freight transport; optimization; optimal control; automatic control; fuel-efficiency; match-making; off-board; intelligent transport systems; automated driving; clustering; scheduling; cooperative; large-scale; dynamic programming; trucks; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : A network-wide coordination system for heavy-duty vehicle platooning with the purpose of reducing fuel consumption is developed. Road freight is by far the dominating mode for overland transport with over 60 % modal share in the OECD countries and is thus critically important for the economy.

  5. 5. Methods to Improve V2V Communications in Platoons of Heavy Duty Vehicles

    University dissertation from Halmstad : Halmstad University Press

    Author : Marcus Larsson; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : In the coming years V2V communications will probably be mandated and vehicle OEMs strive to find business opportunities to finance its investments in V2V communications technology. For heavy vehicles, platooning can be this business opportunity, with the motivation for the fleet owners that platooning can decrease the fuel consumption by up to 15 % when driving in platoons.
