Abstract

There are two mega-trends in the automotive industry for converting the way of traveling in the future. One is the transition from combustion engines to electric vehicles and the second promotes an increased level of automation in future cars. However, automation requires exceptionally high quality environment perception data and various sensor devices, each taking their own share from the vehicle energy storage, which reduces the driving range of electric vehicles. This article proposes an improved ability to save the energy of a vehicle through advanced sensor systems with an adaptive power management of the environment perception system. At low speeds the sensor system is set to a minimal power scheme and at high speed or in adverse weather conditions a high power scheme is used to increase the available sensing range. In addition, it also makes it possible to use V2X communication to restrict sensor power or prohibit the use of certain sensors in radiation sensitive environments.
