Hybrid electric vehicles that can combine the advantages of traditional and new energy vehicles have become the optimal choice at present in the face of increasingly stringent fuel consumption restrictions and emission regulations. Range-extended hybrid electric vehicles have become an important research topic because of their high energy mixing degree and simple transmission system. A compact traditional fuel vehicle is the research object of this study and the range-extended hybrid system is developed. The design and optimization of the condition prediction energy management strategy are investigated. Vehicle joint simulation analysis and bench test platforms were built to verify the proposed control strategy. The vehicle tracking method was selected to collect real vehicle driving data. The number of vehicles in the field of view and the estimation of the distances between the front and following vehicles are calculated by means of the mature algorithm of the monocular camera and by computer vision. Real vehicle cycle conditions with driving environment and slope information were constructed and compared with all driving data, typical working conditions under NEDC, and typical working conditions under UDDS. The BP neural network and fuzzy logic control were used to identify the road conditions and the driver’s intention. The results showed that the equivalent fuel consumption of the control strategy was lower than that of the fixed-point power following control strategy and vehicle economy improved.
