Smart Travelling for Electric Vehicle

Scenario description

The Smart Travelling for Electric Vehicle scenario is the most networked one, being composed of different sub-systems, including the Electric Vehicle, the Person possessing a Personal Agenda, the Smart Energy Grid and the Smart Mobility that provides mobility-aware functionality (e.g. parking places, charge points, etc.). Due to the different involved heterogeneous concurrent sub-systems, this scenario requires a high degree of autonomy and support for adaptability to cope with real life circum- stances. Moreover, it requires to integrate the distributed communication layers of the different involved systems. The proposed model-based approach and its corresponding design framework is meant to facilitate the design of such a complex CPSoS, where several dependencies and a plethora of highly different requirements have to be considered.

Scenario Challenges
  • Real time system in the loop simulations, where battery and motor models from TNO were added to the simulator
  • Multi-Objective Run-Time Optimisation, were multiple KPIs and user preferences were used to optimise itineraries for the driver
  • Run-Time SoS Level Adaptation by monitoring both the car, the driver and the environment during the drive and adapt when needed


The CERBERO Solution

Toolchain for Smart Travelling for Electric Vehicle

To solve the mentioned challenges, the tools DynAA from TNO and MECA from S&T were used to implement the required simulation, advice and adaptation functionalities. Furthermore a special Human Machine Interface was added by Abinsula to provide advice to the driver and interact on required adaptations.  For realisation of the adaptation loop the CERBERO adaptation skeleton and methodology for handling multiple KPIs was applied. The methodologies and tools developed in this Use Case have been integrated into the Virtual Reality Driving Simulator of CRF, the Research Center of FCA.

Smart Travelling Demonstrating Video

In the Smart Travelling use case the Driving Simulator of CRF was upgraded with custom battery and motor models for electric vehicles and a self-adaptive driver assistant. Thanks to the flexibility of the Driving Simulator, it was possible to integrate CERBERO tools and technologies in the system to create the scenario for Smart Travelling Use Case and testing the self-adaptive runtime strategies. In the video an overview is given of the Smart Travelling use case and how CERBERO technologies and tools were used to develop the use case.
