Impact of highly Automated Driving on Mobility Demand and Energy Consumption

The world of transport is currently experiencing a rapid transformation driven by disruptive technologies and trends: One of them is Autonomous Driving. While emerging megacities like Delhi or Beijing need to solve major issues around pollution, congestion and rapid urbanization, developed cities, such as Amsterdam and Singapore, search for highly efficient and automated mobility solutions. Restricting regulations and advanced mobility patterns have a strong impact on general mobility demand and shift between transportation types.

Self-driving cars – Improving energy efficiency

Besides the impact of autonomous vehicles on mobility patterns, they have great potential to positively influence safety, comfort, drivability and energy efficiency. However, to exploit these potentials and also keeping a human-like driving style, many challenges have to be faced. For instance, the right composition of powertrain type, configuration and software capabilities need to be found.

Find out more about the impact of automated and autonomous driving on the energy demand of the vehicle, including the right powertrain type, configuration and software kit in this VDI workshop. Moreover, the influence of artificial intelligence will be discussed by addressing its potentials and its challenges. Further challenges in the field of electrical and electronical car engineering will be discussed at international VDI Congress ELIV (ELectronics In Vehicles), taking place after the workshop on October 17 and 18, 2017 in Bonn.
