“EcoDrive – Personalized Service for Eco Driving” is a research project, co-financed by the European Union – European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Greek national funds through the Operational Program” Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation” (EPAnEK) of the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF). This research project is carried by OSeven Single Member Private Company, Nea Odos SA, the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering and the Laboratory of General Geodesy of National Technical University of Athens.
The ultimate goal of EcoDrive project is to develop an ecosystem of mechanisms and tools able to promote the adoption of ecological and safe driving. The system will interact with the users by creating a two-way communication relationship. On the one hand, the drivers will provide driving behaviour and route data, and on the other hand, the system will provide useful information on adopting eco-friendly driving strategies. To achieve this goal, data directly from users’ smartphones will be gathered and utilized with no user involvement. In order to improve the accuracy of the system and users’ experience, advanced positioning and identification tools supported by Galileo Satellite Signals will be used. Within the framework of the project, advanced signal correction algorithms and other tools will be used to enhance the accuracy and integrity of the sensors’ signals.
