Traffic aware electric vehicle routing
Paper in proceedings, 2016

Since the main constraint of electric vehicles is range due to limited battery capacity, the focus for routing these kind of vehicles should be energy consumption minimization. And since energy consumption depends on several aspects, this article introduces a new model for route optimization of Electric Commercial Vehicles, with a realistic energy consumption model based on factors such as road inclination, weight and speed. The main new feature is to consider average speed for the road network at different times during the day, with the vehicle adapting to traffic flow. Several experiments were performed to evaluate the impact of different elements in energy consumption. As a result a few topics are recommended for future work.
