Abstract [en]

The objective of this thesis is to analyse driving behaviour and to characterize the effectsof an efficient way of driving, termed eco-driving, that enables the driver to reduce fuelconsumption and CO2emissions.The approach used to assess driving style is a collection of data from a CAN bus of acar equipped with OBD-II (on-board diagnostic) system. The driving experiment wasperformed for nine drivers who drove in a normal way or regular driving style and onedriver was an eco-driver who drove in an economical driving style. The driving routewas approximately 18.7 kms (which took between 25 to 30 minutes) in Halmstad city,Sweden.The drivers are compared using a statistical analysis of the driving parameters such as,speed, accelerator (gas pedal) and brake pressure, which are obtained from CAN busdata. A hierarchical clustering algorithm also used to classify the drivers based on theaverage result of the signals.In the results, a driving difference between the eco-driver and the normal drivers is visi-ble, most of the normal drivers have more or less similar behaviour. The average speed ofthe eco-driver lower than the normal drivers and the accelerator (gas pedal) result is alsoshown less usage by the eco-driver than the normal drivers. On the other hand, the eco-driver has braked more often than the normal drivers, but gently. Nevertheless, differenttraffic conditions during the experiment obstructs comparisons between the drivers.
