Fuel Economy is an eco-driving aid and support for drivers and their management in a mixed fleet coming from many brands and fuel systems (i.e. diesel, electric and hybrid). The system measures how much energy is wasted by excessive and uncomfortable driving. The comfort is measured with a G-sensor.
The idea behind the system is to support the driver with information on how they can improve the driving. The system receives input from the bus and combines these data with other sensor input. Based on the input it calculates the drivers driving style through an advanced algorithm in which a large number of variables included and compare the driving between drivers in similar conditions. A screen is in many cases mounted in the drivers view so that the driver can get feedback on their driving style. Feedback is givet both in-vehicle, through apps and through the web.
Fuel Economy helps drivers to do continuous improvements and plan their driving and drive as fuel efficient and comfortable as possible. The result is also greater comfort for passenger through smoother driving.
