Currently, there is lack of integration between systems for vehicle energy management and route planning. Some applications recommend nearby charging stations based on the remaining battery energy at the most basic level. In this research project, we are examining the impact of parameters such as road geometry, vehicle acceleration and deceleration behavior at intersections, and traffic flow conditions on energy consumption. In particular, this research considers the commonly neglected factor of energy consumption tied to vehicle movement dynamics within the context of Electric Vehicle Location Routing issues. These factors, in turn, affect the selection of the optimal route and the best charging station.

Prof. Dr. Ilhan Kocaarslan from Istanbul Technical University Control and Automation consumption based on detailed vehicle dynamics, road and weather conditions, traffic status on the planned route, and driving behaviors. Energy management approaches that take into account factors affecting battery calendar ageing and cyclic ageing will also be developed.
