Early Results from an Online Questionnaire Exploring Future Interfaces Design to Support Fuel-Efficient Driving

Eco-driving is a driving style that seeks to reduce overall fuel use and, as a consequence, subsequent greenhouse gas emissions (Barkenbus, 2010). Eco-driving has both a financial benefit to the driver, who has lower fuel expenditure and a positive environmental impact due to the reduced pollutants. Without feedback regarding eco-driving behaviours however, individuals quickly return …
