Re: [sumo-user] Electricity Consumption

Many thanks Mirko, for your information.

My test network is an isolated intersection with each road from the intersection being 500meters in length. My intention was how the human-driven (Krauss) and Autonomous-driven (ACC) vehicles consume battery electricity. The human vehicle exhibits jerky driving behavior while the autonomous vehicle utilizes its maximum speed without jerky behavior.

The electricity consumption of ACC is strange that in the straight lane, it consumes ~0.57 while turning to the right/left, consuming 20 times extra from 10 to 15 (for 3 to 4 seconds, the time required to cross the intersection). In Krauss CFM, it is of utmost 5 and recovers some energy when there is a jerk.

In the literature, the higher electricity consumption of autonomous vehicles is related to the power consumption of sensors and computing for autonomous driving. My question is if the ACC has a similar explanation.

these are different CFM generating different speed profiles. So it should be expected that electricity consumption may differ. The difference does not sound very big either, as it is in the range of a few % of an average consumption per km. Still depends on how your test network looks like, though.

I have two scenarios in which Battery Electric Vehicles are driven by Krauss CFM (Human driver) and ACC CFM (Autonomous driver). When I compared the electricity consumption results, the ACC-driven vehicles consumed more than the Krauss CFM (between 2 to 7Wh), Is there any explanation for this?
Many thanks in advance.
