Abstract

This book evaluates the ability of ad-hoc and cellular communication to enable cross-traffic assistance at intersections. Potential issues like Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) reception with ad-hoc and limited capacity, higher latency and costs with cellular technology are investigated in two individual evaluations. A method for efficient information delivery via cellular systems and an inter-vehicle NLOS radio propagation model are proposed. Finally, the suitability of both technologies is compared.

Abstract

This work proposes a combined and accurate simulation of wireless channel, physical layer and networking aspects in order to bridge the gaps between the corresponding research communities. The resulting high fidelity simulations enable performance optimizations across multiple layers, and are used in the second part of this thesis to evaluate the impact of fast-fading channel characteristics on Carrier-Sense Multiple Access, and to quantify the benefit of successive interference cancellation.

Abstract

The growing number of automotive radars asks for an investigation of their mutual interference. The present work contributes to this research area by providing models and subsequent analyses. The impact of interference on the functionality of radar sensors is discussed on the basis of a virtual test drive and selected scenarios. Furthermore a proposal for the combined use of interference countermeasures is given.

Abstract

Due to the low energy content of the high-voltage traction battery, the range of battery electric vehiclesis currently restricted. Compared to conventional vehicles, the range is significantly lower. Thus, using a battery electric vehicle everyday might result in a complex conflict of objectives between range, dynamic and comfort requirements.For this purpose, this study develops a holistic system approach, in order to implement and apply range-extending functionalities.

Abstract

In the last few years the automobile design process is required to become more responsible and responsibly related to environmental needs. Basing the automotive design not only on the appearance, the visual appearance of the vehicle needs to be thought together and deeply integrated with the &ldquo;power&rdquo; developed by the engine. The purpose of this book is to try to present the new technologies development scenario, and not to give any indication about the direction that should be given to the research in this complex and multi-disciplinary challenging field.

Abstract

This book on hybrid electric vehicles brings out six chapters on some of the research activities through the wide range of current issues on hybrid electric vehicles. The first section deals with two interesting applications of HEVs, namely, urban buses and heavy duty working machines. The second one groups papers related to the optimization of the electricity flows in a hybrid electric vehicle, starting from the optimization of recharge in PHEVs through advance storage systems, new motor technologies, and integrated starter-alternator technologies. A comprehensive analysis of the technologies used in HEVs is beyond the aim of the book. However, the content of this volume can be useful to scientists and students to broaden their knowledge of technologies and application of hybrid electric vehicles.

Abstract

Since the advent of steam engines and higher throughput railways during the early nineteenth century, the rate of development has been rather steady and incremental. The development of advanced electronic control and command systems, increasing levels of automation, and electrified high-speed railways over the past few decades have transformed the rail transportation posing it as a competitor to aviation. Modern railways are no longer the sole forte of civil and mechanical engineering and involve a broad multidisciplinary engineering disciplines from advanced computing, telecommunications, and networking to big data analytics and even AI. This volume addresses the diverse, evolving, and advanced engineering disciplines including enabling practices and processes involved in shaping modern railways.

Abstract

The electric vehicle and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle play a fundamental role in the forthcoming new paradigms of mobility and energy models. The electrification of the transport sector would lead to advantages in terms of energy efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, but would also be a great opportunity for the introduction of renewable sources in the electricity sector. The chapters in this book show a diversity of current and new developments in the electrification of the transport sector seen from the electric vehicle point of view: first, the related technologies with design, control and supervision, second, the powertrain electric motor efficiency and reliability and, third, the deployment issues regarding renewable sources integration and charging facilities. This is precisely the purpose of this book, that is, to contribute to the literature about current research and development activities related to new trends in electric vehicle power trains.
