The apparent intelligence of the system as a tool for sustainable energy efficient behavioral change

Several studies have shown that drivers are reluctant to adapt an eco-driving behaviour. The purpose of this project is to investigate previous results that the apparent intelligence of a system affect behaviour and thereby provides an explanation to why some eco-driving approaches are more successful then others. To address this, a series of simulator studies are performed to test different interfaces designed to appear more or less intelligent. This is performed to show that a driver can be encouraged to follow eco-driving according if the system is experienced as more intelligent. An important purpose is to create possibilities to make the current vehicle fleet more energy effective with 2-4 TW/h, a year, and achieve sustainable behavioural changes.

This project is a cooperation between Viktoria Swedish ICT and the University of Skövde that will strengthen the region and play an important role for the transportation sector
