Dynamic Zero Emission Bus Corridor (AIR)
Start date: 01/04/2017
End date : 31/03/2019
This project explores how to best use intelligent transportation systems (ITS) to improve the capability of plug-in electric-hybrid (PEH) buses to cover large zero-emission zones. PEH buses are a specific type of electric bus that combines an electric engine with a diesel. They can operate only a selection of its route in fully electric mode. Hence, they require ITS control to select the most suitable locations for driving in such a mode. The selection is a complex multi-objective optimisation problem with several correlated factors influencing the optimal selection. The project identifies three knowledge gaps related to the selection, and addresses them by designing an innovative on-route battery management system for PEH buses. It will allow increasing electric drive range of such buses and reducing overall energy consumption while satisfying various requirements. The project will exploit past research of the postdoc in the fields of advanced driver advisory systems and cooperative ITS.
