Ecodriving

Project Area(s): 
Advanced Vehicles and Fuels

With funding from the University of California’s Multi-campus Research Programs and Initiatives (MRPI) program and San Jose State University's Mineta Transportation Institute, researchers at TSRC are conducting a series of studies to explore motorists' reaction to public education media regarding carbon footprinting and ecodriving and in-vehicle fuel efficiency feedback devices. Carbon footprinting refers to information about how individual actions reduce or increase personal greenhouse gas emissions. Ecodriving refers to driving techniques and maintenance recommendations that reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions while driving. TSRC also collaborated with researchers at UC Riverside, UC Irvine, and UC Davis on an ecodriving workshop held in Berkeley, California in May 2011.
