Abstract

The development of in-vehicle control systems such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS) provides static and dynamic road information. This widely accessible technology can be used to develop an auxiliary control sub-system to reduce vehicle fuel consumption as well as improve road safety and comfort. The raw GPS data from the receiver were processed and integrated with the past trajectory using a Neuro-fuzzy technique. The system essentially used a fuzzy logic derived relief map of the test route and this was further validated and corrected based on the past trajectory from the GPS sensor. The information was then processed and translated in order to estimate the future elevation of the vehicle. Experimental results demonstrated the feasibility and robustness of the system for potential application in vehicle control for reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
