Abstract

The European Integrated Project eCoMove (EU FP7) aims to develop cooperative mobility systems and services that reduce fuel consumption and CO2-emissions with 20%. The innovations that are developed inside the eCoMove project relate to driving behaviour, trip planning and traffic management & control. As one of the first steps the inefficiencies that occur in the current system have been identified. Inefficiencies occur both pre-trip, when a trip is being planned as well as on-trip, when the vehicles are driving in the road network. Pre-trip inefficiencies that are target by the eCoMove project are related to: • Vehicle condition: e.g. low tire pressure, heavy (unnecessary) loading, tire condition, vehicle maintenance condition; • Trip planning: e.g. route choice, travel timing, payload (truck-specific). On-trip inefficiencies targeted by eCoMove are related to: • Secondary (driving) tasks: - Vehicle condition & energy consumers: e.g. driving with open windows, using A/C, heaters, other energy consumers; - Inefficient routing: e.g. driving around looking for a parking place, no adjustment of route to traffic situation / road side signals, inefficient lane choice (e.g. causing late merging). • Primary driving tasks: e.g. acceleration / deceleration, gear choice, idling, speed, stops. Each of the use cases and resulting components and applications that are developed in the eCoMove project, targets one or more of the above mentioned inefficiencies. In this way the inefficiencies are used to keep a clear focus on the project goal of reducing CO2-emissions and unnecessary fuel consumption with 20%.
