A Statistical Approach to Describing Vehicular Driving Cycles 690212

ABSTRACT

Characterization of a vehicular driving cycle in terms of a joint density function for three variables -- vehicle acceleration, vehicle speed, and road gradient -- is presented. Application of this density function to determine the energy requirements associated with propelling a vehicle around a 47-mile city-suburban driving cycle is demonstrated.
