Electric vehicles (EVs) have been gaining momentum in the automotive industry, but they haven’t yet been able to capture the experiences of a driver using a traditional car. The feel of a gas engine roaring as you accelerate, the vibration of the car as you cruise, and the sound of the engine all contribute to the experience of driving.
This is why Mercedes-Benz has come up with a cutting-edge method to simulate the behavior of a traditional vehicle on an electric one. Mercedes-Benz has recently filed a patent, US11707987B1, which covers a method of creating a simulation model and using a neural network to generate a set of simulated target-vehicle controls. This will allow the electric vehicle to act like a different vehicle, giving the driver a more immersive experience.
The simulation model starts with the input of data related to the target vehicle. This could include the engine speed, the road speed, the acceleration, the torque, the steering angle, and more. This data will be used to create a simulation model of the target vehicle. This model will then be used to generate a set of simulated target-vehicle controls.
Once the model has been created, it will be used to control the electric vehicle in order to match the target behaviors of the target vehicle. For example, if the target vehicle has a sawtooth-like torque-speed curve, the electric vehicle will be controlled to achieve this behavior. The electric vehicle will also be controlled to match the acceleration, the engine sound, and the vibration of the target vehicle.
However, the success of this technology depends on the accuracy of the simulation model. The model should be able to accurately predict the behavior of the target vehicle in order to control the electric vehicle correctly. This is why Mercedes-Benz has opted to use a neural network for the model. Neural networks are powerful algorithms that can learn from data and can accurately predict the behavior of a target vehicle.
What’s more, the simulation model can be used to control the electric vehicle in real-time. This means that the driver of the electric vehicle will be able to have the same driving experience as the driver of the target vehicle. The driver of the electric vehicle will be able to hear the engine roar, feel the vibration, and enjoy the acceleration – without consuming any gas!
This technology from Mercedes-Benz could revolutionize the way we drive electric vehicles. It could bring the driving experience of a traditional car to an electric vehicle, and could be the key to making electric vehicles more attractive to drivers. However, it is important to remember that the patent, US11707987B1, is still being filed, and it is not yet certain that this technology will eventually make it to the market.
In conclusion, Mercedes-Benz is taking steps to bridge the gap between traditional vehicles and electric vehicles. The company has come up with a patent, US11707987B1, for a method of simulating the behavior of a target vehicle on an electric one. This could revolutionize the way we drive electric vehicles, by bringing the driving experience of a traditional car to an electric vehicle. However, until the patent is approved, there is no way of knowing if this technology will actually make it to the market.
