Transportation and Vehicle Energy Modeling
For the past 15 years, Argonne has been at the forefront of research in energy-efficient transportation. In recent years, the vehicle technologies have become increasingly complex with the introduction of new powertrain configurations (such as electrified vehicles), new component technologies (such as advanced transmissions and engines) and control strategies (such eco-routing). In addition, with increased focus on connectivity and automation, one cannot only consider the vehicle as a stand-alone element, but rather focus on the entire transportation system due to the numerous interactions with a vehicle and its environment.
The system modeling and control group has developed a series of integrated tools and processes to quickly and efficiently evaluate the impact of advanced vehicle and transportation technologies from a mobility and energy point of view.
