Multiobjective Discovery of Driving Strategies

E. Dovgan (Supervised by B. Filipič and M. Gams)

The goal of this doctoral research is to improve the methodology for discovering driving strategies. We proposed and developed a multiobjective optimization algorithm that searches for driving strategies using a black-box vehicle model and minimizes the traveling time and the fuel consumption. Tests on data from real-world routes show that the proposed algorithm finds better driving strategies than the existing algorithms.

Project accomplished with a successful PhD dissertation defense in January 2014.
