Driving efficiency through predictive learning

This project fundamentally addresses the energy management challenge created by the presence of multiple energy sources; fuel, battery energy and grid energy. Through driver learning and prediction, the technology prepares the propulsion system on approach to the zone, or even the day before, to deploy the best source of energy to achieve the lowest possible emissions or energy use for any given journey.
