Energy-efficient and safe driving

Energy-efficiency and safety became more important in the last decades due to the human-made climate change and the increasing number of cars on the road that led to more accidents and fatalities. Thus, several laws were enacted to reduce the energy consumption, such as the CO2 limitations for passenger cars in the European Union. Due to the increasing importance of energy-efficiency and road safety, car manufacturers are trying to optimize the car and its individual parts, like the car body or the engine. However, there is also the potential to increase the energy-efficiency and road safety by adapting the driving behavior to the current driving situation.  

At IoTLab, prototype of a driving system was developed that tries to educate the driver in energy-efficient and safe driving. Therefore, the driving system shows recommendations to the driver when the driver is driving energy-inefficient or unsafe.

The driving simulator consists of three displays and a several speakers to present the virtual world to the driver. Furthermore, the dashboard of the driving simulator shows the speed and engine speed of the virtual vehicle to the driver. For steering the virtual vehicle, the driver has the opportunity to use a steering wheel, pedals and a gear shift knob. Besides, the controls for steering the virtual vehicle and the presentation of the virtual environment, the driving simulator allows the monitoring of the driver conditions, like the brain activity or the heart beat, using an EEG and an ear sensor.
