  1. 1. Intersection coordination for Autonomous Vehicles

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Teknik och samhälle

    Author : Saif Alhuttaitawi; [2019]
    Keywords : Autonomous Vehicles; Connected Autonomous Vehicles; Poisson distribution; Queuing theory; V2V; V2I; I2V;

    Abstract : Connected Autonomous Vehicles require intelligent autonomous intersection management for safe and efficient operation. Given the uncertainty in vehicle trajectory, intersection management techniques must consider a safety buffer among the vehicles, which must also account for the network and computational delay, queue and determine the best solution to avoid traffic congestions (smart intersection management), in this paper we model traffic by using Poisson distribution method then add a birth-death processes for each state and combine both two in one queuing system (The Markovian chain) to model the traffic.

  2. 2. LCA of Microgrid System: a Case Study at ‘North-five Islands’ of Changshan Archipelago, China

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Jiang Yuning; [2019]
    Keywords : Microgrid system; Life cycle Assessment LCA ; Climate change impact; Greenhouse gas emissions GHG ; China;

    Abstract : Microgrid can provide stable, clean, and sustainable electricity supply for remote places since it can operate on renewable energy sources and work isolated from the utility grid. This thesis evaluates the life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the microgrid system which is located at the ‘North-five Islands’ of Changshan archipelago in China. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of a conceptual sustainability assessment framework : A sustainability assessment of autonomous vehicles
