TomTom achieves 6% CO2 reduction in connected car trial

Wednesday 16 March 2016 | 17:53 CET | News
Connected car systems can reduce CO2 emissions by 6 percent, according to a test by TomTom Telematics. The company achieved this level of savings with ecoDriver, an EU-financed research project aimed at reducing CO2 emissions on roadways. Seven vendors participated in the trial, each with its own car or truck equipped with experimental hardware and software. TomTom used its Webfleet platform as the basis for developing OptiDrive360, a user interface that communicates with the driver about his or her driving habits.
