The Future of Hydrogen Fueling Systems for Fully Automated Vehicles

To facilitate a sustainable transformation that aligns with economic, political, and ideological elements of our societies, this is an auspicious idea to have a deliberated planning for our automated fleets. A crucial item in such vehicles is providing a significant efficiency for users such that it competes with the status quo efficiency of internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs) with petroleum fuels. The charging time for fully hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (HFCVs) is a hindrance for the market penetration of those cars. Moreover, planning for refueling and charging stations should be prioritized in this matter due to the fact that those topics are intertwined with one another. The main hindrance for market penetration of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles at the right moment is range anxiety. In other words, the drivers are not sure if they can make it to the next refueling/recharging station with the ongoing number of charging lots. This study investigates the opportunities and challenges associated with different automated vehicles’ refueling/recharging systems and the provided efficiency of each system. Furthermore, the authors provide some insights on allocating the refueling and charging stations according to each system.
