SHAPES project was presented during the “2022 IEEE Energy Conference” (ENERGYCON), on the 9 -12 May 2022 in Riga, Latvia due to the presentation of the paper entitled “Energy Conservation by using the Integration of Distributed Energy System in Smart Vehicles”, with the following abstract:

Energy conservation has been the concern of researchers in automobile engineering since the German inventor Karl Benz patented his Benz Patent-Motorwagen. We aim to contribute by developing the case of the independent distribution of energy between the wheels. Our goal is to enable the integration of smart panels in the suspension system for the interpretation of road irregularities. The innovation of this research work is based on the provision of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system for intelligent vehicles that will allow the system to detect the road surface in terms of friction and inclination independently on each wheel. Hence, the vehicle’s computer system will be able to provide exactly the energy required for torque Thus, energy consumption will be significantly reduced, while ensuring stability of operation. Through this research work, we propose a Pressure-Sensitive Panel to Vehicle (PSP2V) system in conjunction with digital fluid dynamics simulation. The implementation of the program is based on the solutions of the Navier-Stokes fluid flow equations. Our algorithm could run in real-time on PSPs and interact with the vehicle operating system. The objective is to distribute the appropriate energy between the wheels based on the torque required for proper operation, considering the pressure exerted by the road.
