In the contemporary era, driver less vehicles are a reality due to the proliferation of distributed technologies, sensing technologies and Machine to Machine (M2M) communications. However, the emergence of deep learning techniques provides more scope in controlling and making such vehicles energy efficient. From existing methods, it is understood that there have been many approaches found to automate safe driving in autonomous and electric vehicles and also their energy efficiency. However, the models focused on different aspects separately. There is need for a comprehensive framework that exploits multiple deep learning models in order to have better control using AI on autonomous driving and energy efficiency. Towards this end, we proposed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) based framework for autonomous electric vehicles with multi-model learning and decision making. It focuses on both safe driving in highway scenarios and energy efficiency. The deep learning based framework is realized with many models used for localization, path planning at high level, path planning at low level, reinforcement learning, transfer learning, power control and speed control. With reinforcement learning state-action-feedback play important role in decision making. Our simulation implementation revealed that the efficiency of the AI based approach towards safe driving of autonomous electric vehicle.
