Naturalistic Driving Observation for Energetic Optimization and AccidentAvoidance

Secondary Data Analysis in Vehicle Engineering

Content and learning outcomes

In this course students learn how to handle large data sets and vehicle energy consumption data as well as how to expand these data through the use of data from external sources (secondary data).

Students learn the principles of data preparation and enhancement, focusing in particular on enhancing geographic and meteorological data (e.g. ambient temperature relevant to energy consumption. Available relevant influencing variables, their data sources, and methodologies for determining values are presented and then implemented on the data sets in MATLAB.
