INFLUENCE DES MODES D'UTILISATION ET DE LA CONDUITE DE L'AUTOMOBILE SUR LA CONSOMMATION DE CARBURANT

(1) TO COLLECT STATISTICAL DATA ON THE UTILIZATION OF CARS: BIBLIOGRAPHIC STUDY; DEFINITION AND TESTING OF SAMPLES AND METHODS; PROCESSING OF ROAD RECORDS OR QUESTIONNAIRES OR MEASUREMENT TABLES ON LARGER SAMPLES. ALL ABOVE RESULTS WILL BE USED TO: SINGLE OUT THE MOST SIGNIFICANT PARAMETERS FOR ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND TO EVALUATE THEIR RELATIVE IMPACT; TO SET UP A CLASSIFICATION OF JOURNEYS IN RELATION TO VEHICLES, DRIVERS, ENVIRONMENT AND FUEL CONSUMPTION. (2) TO CONDUCT A SIMULATION STUDY OF DRIVING CONDITIONS TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS, ENVIRONMENTAL CONSTRAINTS, AND DRIVER BEHAVIOUR WITH A VIEW TO EVALUATING THE EFFECTS OF DRIVING BEHAVIOUR ON FUEL CONSUMPTION IN DIFFERENT CONTEXTS (ROAD, TOWN).
