Abstract

The paper proposes the design of the speed of road vehicles, which minimizes control energy and fuel consumption while keeping travelling time and, moreover, considers the local traffic information to avoid conflicts in congestions. Topographic data and speed limits on the road are incorporated into the design of fuel efficient operation of the vehicle. Since the biased consideration of fuel consumption may lead to the reduction of speed, the traffic flow in the surroundings of the vehicle may be impaired. Thus, the information about the local traffic is an important factor considering the wider transportation system. In the paper the energy-efficient predicted cruise control strategy is presented, which is able to adapt to the motion of the surrounding vehicles. In this way a balance between the designed speed and the flow of the local traffic can be guaranteed.
