Optimizing the Energy Usage of EV's and ICEV's in Public Transportation
Guest Speaker: Dr. Aron Laszka, Assistant Professor of Computer Science, University of Houston
Dr. Aron Laszka will present findings from his Department of Energy funded project on the development of a data capture and analysis framework to improve the operational planning of regional transportation authorities. He will discuss how high-resolution data can be collected from a fleet of electric and internal-combustion engine vehicles and how this data can be integrated with traffic, weather, etc. features to create contextualized energy usage predictors, which can be used by public transportation authorities for operational optimization. He will present experimental results based on data collected from the vehicle fleet of the Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority, a project partner.
