Eco-Routing based on a Data Driven Fuel Consumption Model

01/18/2018 ∙ by Xianan Huang, et al. ∙ 0

A nonparametric fuel consumption model is developed and used for eco-routing algorithm development in this paper. Six months of driving information from the city of Ann Arbor is collected from 2,000 vehicles. The road grade information from more than 1,100 km of road network is modeled and the software Autonomie is used to calculate fuel consumption for all trips on the road network. Four different routing strategies including shortest distance, shortest time, eco-routing, and travel-time-constrained eco-routing are compared. The results show that eco-routing can reduce fuel consumption, but may increase travel time. A travel-time-constrained eco-routing algorithm is developed to keep most the fuel saving benefit while incurring very little increase in travel time.
