Title of thesis: Energy Efficient Control of Electric Vehicles 

The adoption of energy-efficient vehicles has become increasingly important as society continues to grapple with the challenges posed by climate change and the desire to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

Energy-efficient vehicles are vehicles designed to consume less energy, usually in the form of fuel, while still providing the desired level of transportation. As technology advances, future vehicles are expected to be equipped with more automation, and electrified powertrains, making them faster, safer, and more energy efficient. This means that it will be essential to learn how to control these vehicles most efficiently. 

The research aims to enable the system to provide more accurate and relevant eco-driving recommendations based on the current driving situation, leading to fuel savings and improved safety.
