Abstract

Transportation is an important contributor to environmental problems like declining air quality. Current traffic measures seek to optimize travel times, but fall short on the ideal of an ecologically friendly traffic system. The European research project eCoMove aims to reduce the overall fuel consumption in traffic by 20 percent by means of energy efficient driving behavior and energy efficient traffic management and control. This paper contributes to the understanding of the feasibility of this goal. Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication is a key element in the vision of eCoMove. In this paper the eCoMove concepts are presented by means of an in-depth look on the eco Adaptive Balancing and Control system. Preliminary studies on rerouting, green priority and speed advice at signalized intersections indicate signification environmental benefits.
