The Effect of Acceleration and Deceleration Information of Preceding Vehicle Group on Fuel Economy of the Following Vehicle

Shuichi Matsumoto

Abstract

Eco-driving and other environmentally-friendly behaviors have been gaining widespread acceptance. In order to encourage eco-driving efficiently, this study looked at the effect of preceding and pre-preceding vehicle’s acceleration-deceleration information on the following vehicle's gasoline mileage. As a result, the following was found: 1. By providing information to a following vehicle, the fuel consumption rate of the following vehicle can be reduced. 2. Subjects that improved their gasoline mileage tended to value pre-preceding vehicle information more than those that worsened it. 3. With the provision of information on the pre-preceding vehicle, the following vehicles started moving earlier. 4. The pre-preceding vehicle's acceleration information caused the following vehicle to increase accelerate gradually when starting to move. Therefore, it was suggested that sharing the information on preceding and pre-preceding vehicles was effective.
