Energy-efficient navigation constitutes an important challenge in electric vehicles, due to their limited battery capacity. We employ a Bayesian approach to model the energy consumption at road segments for efficient navigation. In order to learn the model parameters, we develop an online learning framework and investigate several exploration strategies such as Thompson Sampling and Upper Confidence Bound. We then extend our online learning framework to multi-agent setting, where multiple…

A unified framework for trip destination prediction in an online setting, suitable for both online training and online prediction, is presented and a novel regret metric is proposed for evaluating the entire online framework in comparison to its offline counterpart.

Stochastic Route Planning for Electric Vehicles

This work bridges the gap by finding routes to maximize on-time arrival probability and the set of non-dominated routes under two criteria for stochastic route feasibility: E -feasibility and p -Feasibility, and extends multi-criteria Contraction Hierarchies to accept Stochastic edge weights and offer heuristics to speed up queries.

This work develops a online learning framework based on combinatorial semi-bandits that performs bottleneck identification alongside learning the speci⬁ca-tions of the underlying network.

Passive and Active Learning of Driver Behavior from Electric Vehicles

This work investigates non-recurrent architectures such as self-attention models and convolutional neural networks with joint recurrence plots, and compares them with recurrent models, and demonstrates that some active sampling techniques can outperform random sampling, and therefore decrease the effort for annotation.

It is shown empirical evidence that by enriching the users' trip histories with additional trips, one can improve the prediction error by 15%∼40%, evaluated on multiple subsets of the Nancy2012 dataset.

Online Learning for Energy Efficient Navigation in Stochastic Transport Networks

Consumption Profiles in Route Planning for Electric Vehicles: Theory and Applications

This work shows that the complexity of a profile is at most linear in the graph size, and derives a polynomial-time algorithm for the problem of finding an energy-optimal path between two locations that allows stops at charging stations.

The Shortest Path Problem Revisited: Optimal Routing for Electric Vehicles

This paper formalizes energy-efficient routing in the presence of rechargeable batteries as a special case of the constrained shortest path problem (CSPP) with hard and soft constraints, and presents an adaption of a general shortest path algorithm that respects the given constraints and has a worst case complexity of O(n3).

An O(τS/√AT) bound on expected regret is established, one of the first for an algorithm not based on optimism, and close to the state of the art for any reinforcement learning algorithm.

Efficient Energy-Optimal Routing for Electric Vehicles

This paper shows how battery constraints can be treated by dynamically adapting edge costs and hence can be handled in the same way as parameters given at query time, without increasing run-time complexity.

Efficient Online Learning for Optimizing Value of Information: Theory and Application to Interactive Troubleshooting

This work considers the optimal value of information problem, and proposes a dynamic hypothesis enumeration strategy, which allows efficient information gathering with strong theoretical guarantees and shows that with sufficient amount of samples, one can identify a near-optimal decision with high probability.

Why is Posterior Sampling Better than Optimism for Reinforcement Learning?

An Bayesian expected regret bound for PSRL in finite-horizon episodic Markov decision processes is established, which improves upon the best previous bound of $\tilde{O}(H S \sqrt{AT})$ for any reinforcement learning algorithm.

It is proved that the Bayes-UCB algorithm, which relies on quantiles of posterior distributions, is asymptotically optimal when the reward distributions belong to a one-dimensional exponential family, for a large class of prior distributions.
