IEEE-DAY: " Energy Impacts of Autonomous Vehicles and the Future Trends", VTS WEEK, WEBINAR #2 of 3

Share

Autonomous driving takes serious computational power, which results in increased fuel consumption in internal combustion engine-based vehicles leading to additional pollution or reducing the energy available for propulsion in electric vehicles. The energy impacts of autonomous vehicles may vary significantly along two pathways: the extent to which the partial or full automation of the autonomous vehicle technology is implemented. With significant energy storage and additional electronics in pure electric vehicles, the additional electronics due to the autonomous functionality may have less impact on the overall energy consumption and hence lower or no contributions to pollution.  This presentation discusses the convergence of Electric, Autonomous, and Connected vehicles; Power Consumption problems in CAVs; CAVs and Energy Impact; and the reason for choosing electric connected autonomous vehicles(ECAV).  The future trends are briefly presented.

" Energy Impacts of Autonomous Vehicles and the Future Trends"

Autonomous driving takes serious computational power, which results in increased fuel consumption in internal combustion engine-based vehicles leading to additional pollution or reducing the energy available for propulsion in electric vehicles. The energy impacts of autonomous vehicles may vary significantly along two pathways: the extent to which the partial or full automation of the autonomous vehicle technology is implemented. With significant energy storage and additional electronics in pure electric vehicles, the additional electronics due to the autonomous functionality may have less impact on the overall energy consumption and hence lower or no contributions to pollution.  This presentation discusses the convergence of Electric, Autonomous, and Connected vehicles; Power Consumption problems in CAVs; CAVs and Energy Impact; and the reason for choosing electric connected autonomous vehicles(ECAV).  The future trends are briefly presented.

Biography:

Dr. Kaushik Rajashekara received his BE, ME, and Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Science. He joined the Delphi division of General Motors Corporation in Indianapolis, IN, the USA, as a staff project engineer in 1989. In Delphi and General Motors, he held various lead technical and managerial positions and was a Technical Fellow and the Chief Scientist for developing electric machines, controllers, and power electronics systems for electric, hybrid, and fuel cell vehicle systems. In 2006, he joined Rolls-Royce Corporation as a Chief Technologist for More Electric Architectures and power conversion/control technologies for Electric, More Electric, and Hybrid Electric Aircrafts. In August 2012, he joined as a Distinguished Professor of Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas. Since September 2016, he has been a Distinguished Professor of Engineering at the University of Houston. He is a member of the US National Academy of Engineering in 2012, Foreign member of the Chinese and Indian National Academies of Engineering. He is a recipient of the 2022 Global Energy Prize and 2021 IEEE Medal on Environmental and Safety Technologies and several other awards. He has published over 250 papers in international journals and conferences, has 37 US and 15 foreign patents, has written one book, and contributed individual chapters to 8 books. His research interests are in the area of power/energy conversion, Transportation Electrification, Renewable Energy, and Grid integration.
