Congress: Enhancing Passenger Comfort and Saving Energy with Autonomous Driving

Event: FISITA World Congress 14-16 September 2021 online

Name: Pier Giuseppe Anselma, Postdoctoral Research Associate

Company: Politecnico di Torino

Presentation Title: F2020-ADM-057 - Planning the Velocity of a Parallel Hybrid Electric in Vehicle-to-Vehicle Autonomous Driving: an Optimization-Based Approach

Please introduce yourself briefly…

My name is Pier Giuseppe Anselma and I am a post-doctoral research associate at Politecnico di Torino in Torino, Italy.

What you will talk about at this year’s FISITA World Congress?

At the FISITA World Congress 2021 I will talk about enhancing passenger comfort and saving propelling energy by implementing autonomous driving technologies. As example, this can be achieved by adjusting the speed of the automated vehicle while exploiting information coming from the preceding vehicle in terms of longitudinal speed and inter-vehicular distance thanks to vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication technologies.

What benefits will participants gain from your presentation?

A numerical method to solve the optimal control problem for improving passenger comfort and reducing propelling energy for an automated vehicle travelling in V2V driving will be presented. Thanks to this, calculating the theoretical energy saving and passenger comfort improvement thanks to V2V technology deployment will be enabled.

Which trends do you consider as the most important for your domain of research and your geographical region?

Electrification of powertrains and automation of vehicle operation.

What challenges do these trends present?

Implementing effective, efficient, and reliable control algorithms for these new electrified and automated vehicles represents a quite challenging task for engineers nowadays.

And what opportunities do these trends offer?

Reducing the overall carbon footprint of vehicles, improving comfort and safety of each ride might be enabled thanks to these trends.

About the FISITA World Congress

Since 1947, the FISITA World Congress has been the leading international meeting place for industry experts, engineers and executives to exchange ideas and discuss the trends that drive the automotive industry forward. The theme for the 38th FISITA World Congress is 'From automobile to mobility. New roles. New challenges' and it will take place 14-16 September 2021, with the opportunity for the global audience to join virtually available for the first time. Registration is now open, with the Early Bird and special registration rates available until 31 August 2021.

Content from the 2020 FISITA Web Congress is available within the FISITA Technical Library, while material from previous Congress events back to 1998 is available in the FISITA Store. By the time of this year’s Congress, all the content will be available within the FISITA Technical Library, with free access provided to FISITA members.
