Energy consumption estimation
Current pollution issues generated by internal com bustion engine (ICE) based vehicles have lead to their progressive introduction of electrified transport systems. However, their main drawback is their poor autonomy when compared to conventional vehicles. In order to mitigate this issue, the scientific community is extensively researching on energy optimization and prediction strategies to extend the autonomy of electric vehicles (EV). In general, such strategies require the knowledge of the route profile, being of capital importance to identify whether the vehicle is on route or not. Considering this, in this paper, a geo-fence based route tracking diagnosis strategy is proposed and tested. The proposed strategy relies on the information provided by the Google Maps API (Application Programming Interface) to calculate the vehicles reference route. Additionally, a Global Positioning System (GPS) device is used to monitor the real vehicle position. The proposed strategy is validated ...
