Abstract

Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from transportation is essential in combating global warming and climate change. Eco-routing enables drivers to use the most eco-friendly routes and is effective in reducing the emissions from vehicular transportation. The EcoTour system assigns eco-weights to a road network based on GPS and CAN bus data collected from vehicles to enable eco-routing. Given an arbitrary source-destination pair in Denmark, EcoTour returns the shortest route, the fastest route, and the eco-route, along with statistics for the three routes. EcoTour also serves as a testbed for exploring advanced solutions to a range of challenges related to eco-routing.
