Abstract: ABSTRACTThe 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 torqu…
