Testing and Evaluation of Truck-Based Fuel Monitoring and Operations Management Systems

This project used a combination of Volvo link and Green Roads technologies to explore whether fuel-efficient driving is correlated with safe driving. Volvo link tracked fuel consumption as a function of time and distance traveled. Green Roads technology tracked sudden accelerations, decelerations, and other jerky movements as a proxy for unsafe driving.
