Downhill Safety Assistant Driving System for Battery Electric Vehicles on Mountain Roads

When driving in mountainous areas, vehicles often encounter downhill conditions. To ensure safe driving, it is necessary to control the speed of vehicles. For internal combustion engine vehicles, auxiliary brake such as engine brake can be used to alleviate the thermal load caused by the continuous braking of the friction brake. For battery electric vehicles (BEVs), regenerative braking can be used as auxiliary braking to improve brake safety. And through regenerative braking, energy can be partly converted into electrical energy and stored in accumulators (such as power batteries and supercapacitors), thus extending the mileage. However, the driver's line of sight in the mountains is limited, resulting in a certain degree of blindness in driving, so it is impossible to fully guarantee the safety and energy saving of downhill driving.

Vehicle accelerator and brake pedal on-off state judgment by using speed recognition

The development of intelligent transportation improves road efficiency, reduces automobile energy consumption and improves driving safety. The core of intelligent transportation is the two-way information interaction between vehicles and road environment. At present, mainly the road environment information transmits to vehicles, while the information of vehicles rarely transmits to the outside. The electronic throttle and electronic braking systems of some vehicles using sensors to get the state of the accelerator and brake pedal, which can be transmitted to the outside through technologies such as the Internet of vehicles. But, Internet of vehicles technology has not been widely used, and it relies on signal sources, which is a passive way of information acquisition. In this paper, an active identification method is proposed to get vehicle pedal on-off state also driver operation behavior through existing traffic facilities.

Research on Heat Dissipation Performance of Battery Pack Based on Vertical Arrangement of Flat Plate Heat Pipes

Temperature is a direct factor affecting battery performance. If the temperature of the battery is too high or the temperature difference between cells is too large, it will accelerate the degradation of battery performance, reduce the battery life, and may cause safety problems such as thermal runaway in severe cases. Efficient thermal management of batteries is important to improve battery performance and safety. The flat plate heat pipe(FPHP) has high thermal conductivity, strong isothermal performance and light weight, it’s an ideal heat dissipating component for battery thermal management. In this study, the FPHP is used as the heat conduction component of the battery pack. Firstly, the position of the FPHP with minimum thermal resistance is obtained through experiments.
