The objective of the Hy-Nets4all project is to develop a holistic development and validation platform, which is supporting the development of connected automated vehicles and their components. The focus is on electric cars in urban driving scenarios. The project builds upon the results of the initial Hy-Nets project.
The objective of the previous Hy-Nets project was to develop a novel approach for improving the resource and energy efficiency of connected hybrid cars: hybrid propulsions on a test bench is be coupled with an environmental simulation of the vehicles as well as of the communication between the connected cars. This way, new insights can be derived of their influence in realistic city environments. We plan using the city of Paderborn as an example of a typical European city to assess the potentials of hybrid propulsion in combination with networked cars.
