Beginning with problems of global energy resource shortage and environmental pollution that the automobile industry is facing, this chapter depicts the urgency of vehicle research to save energy and reduce emissions. In order to explain the rationale behind application of vehicle power management, the energy conversion chain for vehicle energy consumption is drawn to readers. After that, the objectives of this book are listed and described. In the following section, current research issues in vehicle power management are delineated and compared as well. The last section of this chapter establishes the organization of this book.
