Development of an ecodriving assistance application for nomadic devices performing real-time and post-trip coaching for road vehicles

Nowadays, the improvement of communication technologies is widely applied to reduce energy use in cars. Several ecodriving applications already appear on the market. They consist in providing a feedback to the drivers describing their ecodriving behavior and they rely on embedded sensors signals (GPS speed and acceleration). However most of these applications does not take into account upcoming events such as curves, slopes or crossings to advise the driver on the best actions to undertake to lower energy consumption. Furthermore, they do not analyze data coming from vehicle sensors. In this paper, we present an application, developed within the FP7 European project ecoDriver, that provides several innovative properties: advice according to upcoming events, a real time evaluation of the driving behavior, the analysis of past actions, an interface with OBD2 connector. This paper further develops the complete architecture and links between each innovative function. Future works will concentrate on integrating image processing in this application in order to detect the possible presence of a front vehicle.
