Neural Networks - A Way to Increase the Fuel Efficiency of Vehicles

Open access


This paper deals with the possibility of creating a vehicle model using a hierarchy of neural networks. Based on this model, it is possible to build an optimization cycle that looks for parameters which are influencing the driving of vehicles along given path. The given path must include a driving through the town, out of town and along the highway section, so the test track contains the greatest number of driving modes. Data for neural network are obtained from the CAN bus and the GPS sensor. Based on the built model and given route it is looking for such route drive, where it eventually came that the development of fuel consumption is lower than in unoptimized drive.
