Evaluating the Electrification of Vehicle Fleets Using the Veins Framework

  title={Evaluating the Electrification of Vehicle Fleets Using the Veins Framework},
  author={Sebastian Schellenberg and R{\"u}diger Berndt and Reinhard German and David Eckhoff},
The case study discussed in this paper involves a company maintaining a vehicle fleet of one hundred vehicles. In this article we will discuss how we extend and deploy the Veins framework, which couples OMNeT++ and SUMO, to help in the process of electrifying this vehicle fleet, i.e., replacing combustion engine cars with electric vehicles to save money and lower CO$_2$ emissions.

A Lightweight Simulation Framework for the Analysis of Electrified Vehicle Fleets
A lightweight simulation framework to support the planning process and to study important effects of vehicle fleet electrification, and shows the usefulness and the capability of the model by presenting results for a mid-sized company's vehicle fleet comprising 100 vehicles.
Extending SUMO and PLEXE Simulator Modules to Consider Energy Consumption in Platooning Management in VANET
An overview of the main simulator modules to support platooning are presented and a simple platooning management protocol has been proposed in order to improve the performance of electrical vehicles from an energetic point of view.
Proceeding of the 3 rd GI / ITG KuVS Fachgespräch Inter-Vehicle Communication ( FG-IVC 2015 )
This paper shows how radio frequency signals can be generated using software-defined radio transmission that include effects of fading, doppler shifts and interference, and provides concrete results from a controlled interference measurement and shows possibilities as well as limitations of this hardware-in-the-loop testing approach.


A Computationally Inexpensive Battery Model for the Microscopic Simulation of Electric Vehicles
This paper presents an accurate yet computationally inexpensive battery and kinematic model to be used in microscopic traffic simulation to help study the performance of thousands of electric vehicles and shows its applicability and correctness regarding the State of Charge and power flows.
Can V2X communication help electric vehicles save energy?
The results indicate that TLVC can significantly reduce the energy consumption of BEV, up to 20% in the authors' setup, however, the actual result is highly dependent on a combination of traffic situation, communication range, auxiliary consumer power demand, road gradient and minimum speed requirement.
Potentials and limitations of Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory systems
This paper investigates the potentials and limitations of Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory systems in a realistic, large scale simulation study and finds that at low traffic densities these systems can meet all their goals and lower CO2 emissions by up to 11.5% whereas in dense traffic several side-effects could be observed, including overall longer waiting times and even higherCO2 emissions for unequipped vehicles.
Bidirectionally Coupled Network and Road Traffic Simulation for Improved IVC Analysis
The hybrid simulation framework Veins (Vehicles in Network Simulation), composed of the network simulator OMNeT++ and the road traffic simulator SUMO, is developed and can advance the state-of-the-art in performance evaluation of IVC and provide means to evaluate developed protocols more accurately.
SUMO (Simulation of Urban MObility) - an open-source traffic simulation
This work introduces yet another system which, in contrast to most of the other simulation software packages, is available as on open-source programm and may be extended in order to fit a researcher´s own needs and also be used as a reference testbed for new traffic models.
