Additional Info

  • Project title: Eco-friendly naturalistic vehicular sensing and driving behavior profiling
  • Research project:

    This project aims to analyse naturalistic vehicular driving behaviour from data extracted from mobile sensors, fused with in-car sensor data accessed using an On-Board Diagnostics-II (OBD-II) system and a Bluetooth/Wi-Fi/wired adapter. This will be used to profile and evaluate the driving behaviour in real time, taking into account eco-driving concerns and an awareness of the physical environment context. An additional focus is in applying the concept of serious games to help incentivise more eco driving through sharing driving metrics and comparing oneself with friends and other peers.
