Vision

The transport sector accounts for nearly one-quarter of global energy-related CO2 emissions, of which almost three-quarters are due to road transport; while Heavy-Duty Vehicles (HDV) represent about a quarter of EU road transport CO2 emissions and some 6% of the total EU emissions. Global demand for transport appears unlikely to decrease and transport fuel demand is expected to grow by nearly 40% by 2035.*

Information and communication technologies (ICT), such as the applications developed in eCoMove, specifically configured to target avoidable fuel consumption have the potential to achieve a cleaner and more energy-efficient mobility of goods and people.

By applying the latest vehicle-to-infrastructure and vehicle-to-vehicle communication technologies, the project has created an integrated solution comprising eco-driving support and eco-traffic management to tackle the main sources of energy waste by passenger and goods vehicles.
