Evaluation of an energy-efficiency and safety relevant driving system on a driving simulator
June 2015. An energy-efficiency and safety relevant driving system was developed that tries to improve the driving behavior in terms of energy-efficiency and safety by showing recommendations to the driver. During the evaluation, the influence of the driving system on the energy-efficiency and safety of the driving behavior will be measured on a driving simulator.
During the JARCA conference, Emre Yay presented that the evaluation plan as well as the preparation of the driving system and the driving simulator are key. In order to allow the creation of a recommendation, the driving system has to be connected to the driving simulator. However, the driving simulator does not provide all needed information, why the limitations of the driving simulator have to be considered in the evaluation plan. Furthermore, the driving simulator has to be prepared for the evaluation of the driving system regarding the scenario defined in the evaluation plan. On the basis of the evaluation plan as well as the prepared driving system and driving simulator the evaluation will be done using 40 test drivers.
