Anticipating traffic when driving, correlated with safe driving, results in less braking and therefore better eco-driving behaviour

The more headway a driver keeps, the less he needs to brake because he has time to anticipate the traffic. Indeed, this figure shows that more headway corresponds with less braking, when comparing the points for one velocity range, e.g. 0-50 km/h. These results are retrieved for one driver after binning the data points per […]

Different driving styles can be identified by different patterns in gear shifting and braking behaviour. The difference in fuel consumption and emissions due to driving behaviour can be up to 25% in urban areas. Anticipating traffic when driving, correlated with safe driving, results in less braking and therefore better eco-driving behaviour

Since some drivers shift gear much earlier than others, gear shifting behavior is a good indicator for eco-driving behaviour. Drivers that shift gear at low velocities and moderate accelerations enter third gear around 30 km/h, whereas others only reach third gear at 45 km/h in the same type of vehicle. In terms of fuel consumption, […]
