Special Issue Introduction

Recent technologies for electrified vehicles aim to enhance energy-saving potentials and traffic safety. To this end, energy management strategies (EMSs) have become a key technique for hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), which contribute to vehicular performance and fuel economy. Challenges in the design and performance of EMSs are the external factors such as future traffic conditions, wherein the adjustment of power distribution ratio is highly dependent on predicting the change of vehicle speed. Meanwhile, recent advancements in intelligent transportation systems offer technologies for connected and automated vehicles that enable information sharing between vehicles via vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications. Proper energy management in conjunction with levels of communication connectivity can then be incorporated to design EMSs for HEVs to achieve fuel economy and traffic safety simultaneously.

In this Special Issue, we aim to capture frontier theoretical and experimental research that addresses different challenges and opportunities in the development of EMSs for HEVs in connected and autonomous driving. Topics include, but are not limited to the following issues:
● Decentralized control algorithms for autonomous electric vehicles;
● New energy vehicle platoon energy-saving methods;
● Driver-style influence to improve the efficiency and mobility of electrified vehicles;
● Limited communication EMSs in connected driving;
● Velocity prediction strategies for electrified vehicles in car-following scenarios;
● Energy management of electrified vehicles in mixed traffic conditions;
● Eco-driving control of electrified vehicles.
