Study aims to improve fuel economy by 30 percent
Date:8/17/2011

thms for individual vehicles and drivers based on real-world fuel consumption data from the engine control unit of each vehicle.

By integrating driver feedback technology, it is expected that overall fuel savings will range from 10 percent to 30 percent.

The project will also enable drivers to improve and optimize driving habits and enable fleet managers to monitor performance and make adjustments to training and policies. The researchers will also develop a database of driving conditions in the fleet's operating area, which will continually be improved by algorithm modifications.

The project is a public private collaboration.

Involved on the public side are: UC Riverside; UC Berkeley, which will provide behavioral analysis of drivers; and Riverside Transit Agency and California Department of Transportation, both of which will provide fleet vehicles for testing.

Involved on the private side are: ESRI, a Redlands-based developer of geographic information systems (GIS) technologies that will provide state-of-the-art software for mapping, navigation, routing, and vehicle tracking; NAVTEQ, which will provide mapping and traffic data and technical support; Beat the Traffic, which will provide access to smartphone GPS data and develop methods to determine delays on roads; Earthrise Technology, which will provide telematics devices and software interface; and Automatiks, which will provide system configuration and installation of the in-vehicle device.

All the work on this project, except for the field operational tests, will be performed at the Center for Environmental Research and Technology. The field operational tests will be performed on a variety of in-use vehicles from commuters and commercial fleets operating throughout Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
