Minimum energy consumption with maximum comfort driving experience defines the ideal human mobility. Recent technological advances in most highly automated driving systems on electric vehicles with regenerative braking system not only enhance the safety and comfort level but also present a significant opportunity for automated eco-driving. Intelligent Electric Vehicles (IEVs) should accomplish a holistic control integration of driving safety, comfort, and energy sustainability. This research focuses on longitudinal eco-driving considering the coordinated control for 4WD intelligent electric vehicles. The intelligent electric vehicle framework with 4-wheel hub motors is established and the intention-aware longitudinal automated driving strategy for overall traffic situation levels is proposed. Further, the coordinated control strategy arbitrates the control mode basing on the traffic situation level and distributes braking forces between the electronic hydraulic braking system and the cooperative regenerative auxiliary braking system. The proposed strategy is verified in the co-simulation environment and field test respectively. Test results show optimal control effects in overall traffic situation levels and an enhanced energy recycling efficiency.
