In this 60-minute webinar, Stephen Jones, Principal Product Manager, Systems Engineering at AVL, outlines how the company’s unique development methodologies and tools are applied for the development & testing of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) features that improve energy efficiency. Key topics of discussion included:

  • Predictive Energy Management & the Connected Powertrain – leveraging data from ADAS sensors & V2X
  • Predictive & Adaptive Cruise Control – reducing CV energy consumption during inclines and despite traffic
  • Traffic Light & Bus Stop Assistant – improved energy consumption in urban environments
  • Energy-efficient Co-operative Adaptive Cruise Control – an increasingly holistic approach for the future
  • Platooning CV – computational fluid dynamics that lead to more intelligent control software
