Researchers from academia and industry are collaborating on a project that aims to improve the energy efficiency of electrified vehicles, thus enabling them to reduce energy consumption and extend range distances. The success of the project hinges on innovative connectivity and optimized automation. Technologies including V2X, platooning, and eco-routing are now being developed and tested thoroughly by the project team. MicroAutoBox and ControlDesk play key roles in this research.
