European motorists are being shown how to drive more economically in a unique project designed to help reduce fuel bills and lower CO2 emissions. The Nissan Intelligent Driver Project (NIDP), an eight-month study of drivers in the United Kingdom (UK) that begins this month, uses satellite navigation systems, mobile phone technology and advanced vehicle telematics to analyse driving habits and suggest ways of improving fuel economy. Reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 are the two main targets behind the project.

Applications and equipment
Driving behaviour feedback using probe car data.
100 participants: owners of regular passenger cars.
Equipment carried by test users
Mobile phone data communication
Pre-simulation / Piloting of the FOT
In Japan, this function is already actualized since 2007. “ECO drive advice”
Method for the baseline
Techniques for measurement and data collection
Data collected will be used in two ways - on-board and off-board. On-board, fuel economy information is relayed to the driver. By analysing the way the car is being driven, advice can be sent to the driver to promote fuel-efficient driving techniques. Off-board analysis is available via the Internet site where the day's mileage can be evaluated in greater detail and eco-training advice can be given. A driver's performance can be measured against others driving identical cars, with competition helping encourage participants to improve their ratings - providing further benefits to the environment.
Data is available but not published yet.
Recruitment goals and methods
Ordinary drivers in their every day car life. Nissan users in the UK were inquired by Nissan.
Methods for the liaison with the drivers during the FOT execution
Methods for data analysis, evaluation, synthesis and conclusions
Analyze every drivers behaviour and user fuel consumption.
