In urban areas, the main factor causing excessive fuel consumption is stop-and-go, which is prevalent at urban intersections. To decrease fuel consumption at the intersections, various methods have been proposed and evaluated using simulation models and driving simulators. However, it is not known how reliable the driving simulator results would be when compared with those of the field test. In this paper, eco-driving guidance and eco-signal system based on vehicle-to-infrastructure…
