Development of an In-Vehicle Eco-Drive Agent for Supporting Fuel Efficient Driving

Enhancing driver behavior is among key initiatives aimed to enhance safety and reduce fuel consumption and emissions in many cities around the world. While many separate in-vehicle Intelligent Transport System (ITS) devices such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are reaching maturity where they will be fully integrated into vehicles, there is an opportunity for developing an in-vehicle adaptive fuel-efficiency device. The integration of in-vehicle ITS devices provides a good platform for an adaptive fuel-efficiency device which can learn more about the behavior of actual drivers in different driving contexts. The discrete, dynamic and distributed nature of traffic requires that an in-vehicle adaptive fuel-efficiency device not merely responds to information but continuously and autonomously anticipates, learns, adapts and actively supports drivers. Agent technology has proven ability to support these important features. This paper describes a development plan for an “Eco-Drive Agent”, a personal assistant to drivers for supporting fuel efficient driving.
