The Current and Future Performance and Costs of Battery Electric Trucks

  • Principal Investigator Lewis Fulton, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
This white paper will review the key literature and estimates, attempt to understand the reason for differences and resolve these, undertake sensitivity analysis and a “final” robust analysis with conclusions about the best applications of BETs and where they may be very challenged to replace diesels.

A Truck Routing Model to Reduce Fuel Consumption and Emissions while Accounting for Parking Availability and Working Hours Constraints

Research Product Type
Research Brief
Researchers at the University of Southern California developed a truck routing model that minimizes fuel consumption and reduces emissions while explicitly accounting for parking availability and hours-of-service constraints. The researchers used the model to test various scenarios that reflect the practical constraints faced by drivers.

Eco-Friendly Intelligent Transportation System Technology for Freight Vehicles

  • Principal Investigator Petros Ioannou, Ph.D.
  • University of Southern California
This project examines intelligent traffic control strategies, which will have positive impact on the environment by reducing fuel consumption and pollution levels in areas where the truck volume is relatively high.
