The focus on reducing CO2 emissions from the transport sector is larger than ever. Increasingly stricter reductions on fuel consumption and emissions are being introduced by the EU, e.g., to reduce the air pollution in many larger cities. Large sets of high-frequent GPS data from vehicles already exist. However, fuel consumption data is still rarely collected even though it is possible to measure the fuel consumption with high accuracy, e.g., using an OBD-II device and a smartphone.

Key Quantitative Results

  • Results show that introducing a 3D map improves the accuracy of fuel-consumption estimates with up to 40% on hilly roads.
  • The fuel consumption estimates are most accurate on flat terrain with average fuel estimates of up to 99% accuracy.
