Traffic Network Simulation Environment for the Co-operative eCoMove System

In the EU FP7 project eCoMove will create an integrated solution for road transport energy efficiency based on co-operative technology. The project’s core concept assumes that there is theoretical minimum energy consumption achievable with the “perfect eco-driver” travelling through the “perfectly eco-managed” road network. In order to perform a large scale evaluation of the concept a microscopic simulation environment is being implemented that shall model the reality with installed eCoMove applications as realistic as possible. The main requirements for the simulation environment are (1) to integrate the eCoMove applications without any changes from their test site implementation, (2) to be able to influence the behaviour of the vehicles according to real implementation behaviour, and (3) to systematically assess the impact of eCoMove applications. Results will be used to improve the microscopic simulations, which will then be applied for an impact assessment. This allows to identify further reduction potentials as well as to adjust the applications. This paper summarizes the conception of the simulation environment and explains the co-operation with in-vehicle components.
