Abstract

Eco-driving has attracted a great deal of attention as a countermeasure against global warming to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide from vehicles. Fuel economy would be improved by the eco-driving behaviors such as a few changes in velocity, smooth acceleration at start, active use of engine brake, and so on. However, the fuel consumption reduction effects of the eco-driving have still not been verified adequately. Furthermore, there are few studies which verify effects of a fuel consumption meter and instruction contents of the eco-driving on the driving behaviors. In the present paper, driving simulator experiments are performed to evaluate the fuel consumption reduction effects of the presentation of the fuel consumption meter and the instructions of the eco-driving.
