A viable solution for increasing fuel efficiency in vehicles is optimizing driver behavior. In our previous work, we proposed a data-driven Intelligent Driver System (IDS), which calculated an optimal driver behavior profile for a fixed route. During operation, the optimal behavior was prompted to the drivers to guide their behavior toward improving fuel efficiency. This system was proposed for fleet vehicles mainly because a small increase in fuel efficiency of fleet vehicles has a significant…
