Title: Practical Work with Robots
Speaker: Sousso Kelouwani, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières
Description: According to the Conference Board of Canada, Automated Vehicles (AV) will be the next disruptive technology with a substantial reduction of annual road fatalities by more than 75%. Besides the obvious advantages of transportation security and goods/person effective mobility, intelligent vehicle gives a unique opportunity to increase the transportation energetic efficiency, specifically for electric/hybrid vehicle.
Indeed, sensors involved in the vehicle safety during a motion can be used to modulate efficiently the vehicle dynamic regarding energy consumption. In addition, sensing and communication capabilities can significantly contribute to the vehicle path planning and energy management so that the global energy efficiency is increased. However, several challenges need to be solved in order to unlock this promising technology.
This lecture will cover the fundamental aspects of anticipating energy required during a short and along trip with a low-carbon footprint vehicle. Recent advances in vehicle dynamics monitoring as well as vehicle/navigation road interaction sensing will be discussed.
