Abstract:The vehicle longitudinal dynamics is responsible for calculating the vehicle power consumption undergone a specific route, by means of the estimation of the forces acting on the system such as aerodynamic drag, rolling resistance, climbing resistance and the driver behavior. The gear shifting tactics influences the vehicle performance and fuel consumption because it changes the powertrain inertia and the engine speed. The literature presents gear-shifting strategies based on the engine power and torque as well… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
