Driving style influence on car CO 2 emissions

  title={Driving style influence on car CO 2 emissions},
  author={Adriano Alessandrini and Alessio Cattivera and Francesco Filippi and Fernando Ortenzi},
Road transport is a major contributor to environmental pollution and driving style is one of the most significant among factors in the environmental impact of a vehicle. In the past two decades a new driving style, called eco-driving, has been developed to reduce CO2 emissions in driving and nowadays it is a climate change initiative not to be overlooked. CTL (Centre for Transport and Logistics) has developed an innovative tool to acquire data from vehicles and to measure car fuel consumption…

Green Driver: Travel Behaviors Revisited on Fuel Saving and Less Emission

Road transportation is the main energy consumer and major contributor of ever-increasing hazardous emissions. Transportation professionals have raised the idea of applying the green concept in

Gamification of EcoDriving Behaviours through Intelligent Management of Dynamic Car and Driver Information

The foundations laid here are expected to result in a widespread adoption of sensor-based gamification platforms in areas going far beyond eco-driving and the impact of such a holistic and innovative approach is huge.

Driving behavior classification at signalized intersections using vehicle kinematics: Application of unsupervised machine learning

The framework confirmed that in general driving behavior at a signalized intersection reflects drivers’ habits and personality rather than the signal condition, still, it manifests the intersection nature that usually requires drivers to be more vigilant and cautious.

Driving Behavior and Traffic Safety: An Acceleration-Based Safety Evaluation Procedure for Smartphones

This work is part of the wider research project M2M, Mobile to Mobility: Information and communication technology systems for road traffic safety which is based on the use of mobile sensor computing systems for giving real-time information in order to reduce risks and to make the transportation system more safe and comfortable.


The reduction of CO 2 emission which is in direct relationship with fuel consumption is of prime importance for the future sustainable use of passenger cars. For the given passenger car, the fuel
