ecoDriver is an EU funded research project which targets a 20% reduction of CO2 emissions and fuel consumption in road transport by encouraging the adoption of green driving behaviour. Drivers will receive eco-driving recommendations and feedback adapted to them and to their vehicle characteristics. A range of driving profiles, powertrains (conventional, hybrid, electrical) and vehicles types (passenger cars, vans, trucks, buses) will be tested in order to optimise the driver-powertrain-environment feedback loop. The ultimate goal is to deliver the most appropriate eco-driving advice or feedback for any given situation. The choice modelling component looks at the potential uptake of ecoDriver tools.
