Predictive energy-minimizing velocity control in a dynamic environment

Reference number
Coordinator Scania CV Aktiebolag - NECS
Funding from Vinnova SEK 3 068 346
Project duration September 2015 - August 2018
Status Completed
End-of-project report 2015-02325.pdf(pdf, 363 kB) (In Swedish)

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.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
