Ford: Cloud-based Routing and Velocity Profile Optimization for Everyday Driving

Using detailed vehicle fuel consumption models, map databases including road grade, infrastructure estimation such as traffic light states, and inter-vehicle dynamics, significant fuel savings and environmental impact reduction are achieved. Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) focusing on the solutions of this class of vehicular optimization problems using Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technologies are developed and tested to generate drive guidance or direct integration with semi-automation systems such as ACC.
