Two weeks ahead of the Paris Motor Show, the IFPEN Transports Energie Carnot Institute (IC IFPEN TE) is launching a new service solution – DriveQuant – aimed at improving driver behavior and reducing fuel consumption.
The technology has been developed to reflect the fact that safetyand a vehicle's fuel performance depend in part on the way a vehicle is driven rather than solely on the technologies and powertrain present in the vehicle.
DriveQuant draws on IC IFPEN TE's R&D to anticipate the development of services meeting evolving smart mobility needs.
In 2014, research engineers specializing in automotive control at IC IFPEN TE developed the GECO eco-driving application.
Objective: to achieve fuel savings of between 10 and 15% with the same technologies.
Used by more than 22,000 drivers, GECO is built around scientific algorithms that provide fair and accurate driving assessments.
Today, IFPEN is going further still by launching a global solution aimed at analyzing driving performance and supporting drivers.
Four types of web service are available:
In addition to web services, DriveQuant offers a mobile application that can be used as a white-label service and an SDK (Software development kit – iOS or Android) to facilitate the integration of driving analysis services in its customer solutions.
The DriveQuant platform incorporates patented algorithms resulting from several years of R&D work. It is managed by a dedicated team of engineers and researchers with specific expertise in the vehicle sector. Several million kilometers of driving data collected via telematic devices and smart phones have already been analyzed.
The algorithms are enhanced with data external to the vehicle (topography, traffic conditions, weather, etc.). DriveQuant services are compatible with a mobile application or a connected unit on board the vehicle. Data can be displayed on web-based dashboards or mobile applications, particularly in cartographic form.
The DriveQuant team will collect, analyze and process its customers' data with a view to extracting useful information and adding value to their solutions. The platform is adaptable to customers' needs and compatible with all types of telematic solutions
