Design and Assessment of the Impact of a Fuel-Efficiency Support Tool

    Abstract

    A new-generation fuel-efficiency support tool has been designed that assists in minimising fuel consumption. The support tool presents advice to the driver on how to optimise driving behaviour. A driving simulator experiment shows that on average drivers were able to reduce fuel consumption upto 23% compared with ‘normal driving', on urban networks.

    The impacts on traffic performance and safety were assessed using the microscopic traffic simulation model Pelops. It is concluded that the support tool combines large reductions in fuel consumption without negative effects on traffic performance. There are even indications that traffic safety is affected positively.
