Abstract

Due to the battery's limited storage capacity, it is important to reduce energy consumption of electric vehicles. Depending on the average speed, an aggressive driving behaviour can result in an up to 40% higher energy consumption compared to an economic one. In this work, we propose a methodology, which calculates driver parameters based on measured real drive speed and acceleration profiles as well as signposted speed limits. The presented approach compares the energy consumption and driver parameters between our past estimation and the real drive speed profile in order to continuously improve the energy demand estimation for the remaining distance. Thus, this paper provides a procedure to increase the accuracy of energy demand estimation for battery electric vehicles which helps to reduce the range anxiety. In future work, it will be used within a navigation assistance system that supports the driver in reaching his destination with a low battery charge.
