Developing and Field Implementing a Dynamic Eco-Routing System

The objective of this research effort is to apply earlier promising research results that were demonstrated in a simulation environment to develop an in-vehicle dynamic eco-routing system to showcase how such a system can be implemented, identify the data needs for a successful system (accuracy and coverage), and communication messages needed to exchange information. Specifically, the proposed study will develop an eco-routing system that comprises of an In-vehicle eco-routing processor, a vehicle communication system, an In-vehicle eco-navigation system, and a TMC eco-routing server system. A key functional requirement of the proposed eco-routing system is the ability to display the eco-routing information that is computed by the TMC eco-routing server. The developed eco-routing system will be implemented in test vehicles for field tests in the Northern Virginia Area. In addition, the simulation analysis will be extended to study the network-wide effect of network configuration and structure, land-use, data quality, data latency, level of congestion on the system performance and the study will quantifies the system-wide impacts of implementing a dynamic eco-routing system. It is anticipated that the research will be instrumental in the successful implementation of an eco-routing system.
