Simulation of Communication Models for Headway Minimisation in the Context of Car2Car Energy Sharing
With the advancement of electric and autonomous cars new ways to charge and distribute energy are researched. One method researched at the Biorobotics Lab of the FU Berlin is Car2Car energy sharing. For efficient and safe energy transmission a minimal headway with high stability between two cars needs to be guaranteed.
In the scope of the thesis Car2Car communication will be evaluated in comparison with sensor based information gathering. Two Car2Car communication models will be implemented. The first will utilise the communication to transmit data as a replacement for the sensor. In the second model the planned future behaviour of the leading car is shared with the following car. The second model will be evaluated with the sensor and the data transmitting model as fallback systems.
