A Day in the Life of an Electric Bus


What is the optimal way to measure and store data of the driveline of the electric BRAVO busses used in Eindhoven. The assignment is to create a detailed description of the routes taken by the BRAVO busses and to create an insight in the driveline energy consumption. The goal of this assignment is to provide VDL with a computer-model in which the exact consumption of the electric busses can be calculated. With such a model, a city in which electric busses are going to drive in the future can be established in terms of bus routes, charging points and stations.
