Logo e3CAVIFPEN Scienc'Innov Workshop: Connected and Automated Vehicles for Energy Efficiency and the Environment (e3CAV); 30 Sept-1st Oct. 2019

In recent years, a new research interest has emerged in sustainability and the environmental impact of mobility. The prospective large scale diffusion of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) represents one of the most effective levers to improve the energy efficiency of transportation.

The two-day e3CAV workshop organized by IFPEN aimed to host and promote discussion on how CAVs can serve the purpose of improving the sustainability of mobility. The workshop will focus on the latest outlooks and results related to:

  • vehicle trip planning

  • vehicle trip operation

  • transportation network planning

  • transportation network operation

We had the opportunity to bring together and foster discussion between experts from various scientific communities (automatic control, traffic flow theory, operations research) for the single objective of making transportation energy-efficient.
