We applied a policy search algorithm to the problem of optimizing a start-stop controller—a controller used in a car to turn off the vehicle's engine, and thus save energy , when the vehicle comes to a temporary halt. We were able to improve the existing policy by approximately 12% using real driver trace data. We also experimented with using multiple(More)
Many people are working on improving the efficiency of car's engines. One approach to maximizing efficiency has been to create start-stop systems. These systems shut the car's engine off when the car comes to a stop, saving fuel that would be used to keep the engine running. However, these systems introduce additional energy costs, which are associated with(More)
