Cooperative Mobility Systems and Services for Energy Efficiency


ICT (Information & Communication Technologies) applications & services specifically applied for environmental ends, or so-called “Green ITS”, have the potential to achieve cleaner and more energy-efficient mobility for people and goods.

The eCoMove project will test and validate a number of “Green ITS” technologies that can help drivers, freight and road operators save fuel, unnecessary kilometers driven and manage traffic more efficiently.

The combination of these innovative systems and services has the potential to deliver a 20% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Objectives

The essence of innovation in eCoMove is that the developed services and applications will be integrated within an eco cooperative system to support:

  • Drivers sustainably eliminate unnecessary fuel consumption through green driving and routing advice
  • Fleet managers optimise their tour planning and cut down fuel costs through eco-driving support and truck-specific nagivation
  • Road operators balance traffic flows in the most energy-efficient way on the urban and interurban network.

These innovative solutions are enabled by the use of cooperative information exchange between vehicles and roadside, which improves the preview of the traffic situation ahead in order to determine the most energy efficient route or way or way of driving.

Duration and Funding

From April 2010 to March 2013.

Co-funded by the European Commission under the 7th RTD Framework Programme, Information Society and Media Directorate-General (FP7-ICT-2009-4)
