Connected efficiency – A paradigm to evaluate energy efficiency in tactical vehicle-environments
As traffic density is increasing, determination and optimization of energy consumption of vehicles can no longer be considered in isolation to their reactive environment. Optimization of energy efficiency is a connected issue of considering interactions between vehicles in their tactical vehicle-environment. In this paper we present a definition of tactical vehicle-environment on multilane roads and introduce the term connected efficiency. The connected efficiency facilitates the quantification of energy efficiency across several vehicles. The utilization of connected efficiency is shown in a simulated highway scenario.
