IEEE RRVS Aug(in sept) Meeting: Prediction, Estimation, and Control of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles

September 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) have been heralded as a transformative technology, leading to the new era of transportation with unprecedented safety and mobility benefits. They also push the energy efficiency of the transportation systems at both the macro (traffic flow) and micro (vehicle) levels to the next height with abundant new opportunities for communication and optimization. We will discuss some fundamental technical challenges for prediction, estimation, and control at the core of the CAV technology in this talk. Using the integrated power and thermal management for CAV as an example, we will show how model-based design, complemented by data-driven approaches, can lead to control and optimization solutions with a significant impact on energy efficiency and operational reliability, in addition to safety and accessibility. Several unique problem characteristics, such as multi-timescale, the highly interactive nature of subsystems involved, and the dynamic and uncertain environment that CAVs are operating within will be illuminated, and open challenges will be highlighted.
