Abstract

Compared to usual driving styles, eco-driving is an ecological driving way aiming to reduce emissions and fuel consumption which has received lots of concerns since its emergence. Many studies have shown that eco-driving does bring environmental benefits for individual vehicles in varying degrees. However, the efficiency of eco-driving in terms of the global view of the traffic flow still remains to be studied due to the interaction between eco-driving vehicles and the ones with normal driving styles. In this study, an eco-driving field experiment was conducted first and driving data was collected. An integrated microscopic simulation platform was built by combining the calibrated VISSIM microscopic simulation model and the fuel consumption model; then the impacts of eco-driving behaviors on the test intersection were analyzed. The before-and-after comparison of the evaluating indicators under different traffic scenarios shows that the effects of eco-driving on the intersection are strongly related to the traffic conditions.
