Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project was to develop control strategies for predictive speed- and powertrain control of heavy duty vehicles in dynamic settings such as vicinity of cities or in mines. The goal of a fuel reduction of up to 10% has been surpassed by showing up to 13% in simulations.
Expected results and effects
The project has resulted in 4 published, 1 accepted but not yet published, and 1 submitted scientific papers. It has also led to a significant competence increase at and knowledge transfer between KTH and Scania. The result has also been spread within Scania and has been very useful.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has mainly been carried out by an industrial PhD student. It has been a successful way to combine knowledge about products and services with academic research. The collaboration with an academic PhD student has also led to valuable knowledge transfer in both directions.
