Artificial intelligence for fuel management

University of California is developing a system of energy management for hybrid electric vehicles, which uses a piece of AI that can learn from past experience. The new algorithm provides significant savings compared to more basic energy-management systems for plug-in hybrids that simply switches to combustion power once the battery is depleted.

  • Productivity impact: 10.7% more efficient
  • Energy impact: fuel savings of 31.5%
