Energy- and environmental savings - Lerum Frakt AS

The projects aims to analyze what factors influence fuel consumption in trucks used by Lerum Frakt. The analysis is based on data collected from Dynafleet, a transport information system developed by Volvo. This system registers fuel consumption and driving length in addition to use av cruise control, rolling without engine load, use of automatic gear shift, power outtake and average speed.

In additon to statistical analyses the project will analyse how fuel consumption varies along specific routes. This information will enable drivers to select the best route among several alternative ones and to optimize use of driving indicators like use of cruise control and rolling without engine load which may reduce fuel consumption on that specific route.
