Influencing Driver Behaviour for Environmental Benefit: The Role of ITS Technologies

As vehicle technologies become ever more efficient and sophisticated, it is increasingly the case that the most inefficient and variable component in the modern passenger car is the driver. With the support of a case study, this paper investigates variability in driver behavior, and seeks to both classify and quantify the effects. Statistical cluster analysis techniques are utilized to group different types of driver behavior. The paper then goes on to investigate the relationships between these clusters of behavior types, and metrics of environmental efficiency. Finally, a range of intelligent transportation system (ITS) technologies are discussed which have the potential to influence driver behavior towards an environmental and resource optimum.
