Driving Style

Save on fuel and maintenance costs and reduce CO2-emmisions

Fuel costs and maintenance costs represent a major part of your total vehicle costs and both components are strongly influenced by the driving style of your drivers. Therefore they can make an important contribution to saving on these costs. Just knowledge on how to drive more efficiently is not enough. Your drivers also a need direct feedback on the current functioning. By monitoring fuel consumption and driving style, your drivers become aware of their behavior and are stimulated to make an effective contribution to improving your business performance.
The driving behavior of the driver is analyzed and judged on the basis of customer and vehicle-specific parameters to which scores are assigned. Using these indicators, a benchmark is created in which, among other things, the following indicators are used:

  • Use cruise control
  • Speed
  • rPM
  • Stationary time
  • Acceleration
  • Deceleration
  • Roll out (‘Coasting’)

The EasyDrive module gives you more insight into the driving behavior of the drivers, the fuel consumption and the associated CO2 emissions. Research has shown that active guidance on driving behavior can result in fuel savings of an average of 8 to 12%! (Source: TNO)
In addition, active management of improving driving behavior, with the help of EasyDrive, naturally leads to a reduction in maintenance costs.

EasyDrive Solo

  • Monitor your fuel consumption

Using CAN-bus data, EasyDrive generates clear reports about the fuel consumption and driving style of your drivers and vehicles. Based on customer and vehicle-specific parameters, driving behavior is analyzed and evaluated and scores are also awarded.

Thanks to these easy-to-read reports, you can create a ranking of your drivers and compare who has the most economical driving style. In this way, you have more insight into the fuel consumption of your fleet, related to driving behavior and can encourage your drivers to improve their driving behavior even further, which lead to an even more economical driving style. Indicators such as speed, acceleration, brake performance, speed, drive time and cruise control are presented in a clear manner so that you can give your drivers good feedback with this detailed information.

  • Determine the standards yourself

For the indicators that EasyDrive measures, you determine the standard, depending on the type of vehicle and the type of work. For a van different standards apply to a truck. You determine which standards best suit your company and drivers.

  • EasyDrive has a quick ROI

EasyDrive provides you with accurate insight into the behavior of your drivers, fuel consumption and related CO2-emissions. Research from TNO has shown that active driving guidance can result in fuel savings of 8 to 12%!

EasyDrive Plus

Research by TNO has shown that 85% of the planned savings are realized by direct feedback to the driver. For this reason, we have expanded EasyDrive with EasyDrive Plus.

  • Direct feedback with the Driving Style Assistant

Thanks to the active Driving Style Assistant on the display of EasyDrive Plus, the driver gets one to one feedback about the scores of his driving behavior.

Using a color that varies from green, orange or red, combined with a report, the driver is informed proactively about his driving style. The driver can see this based on: the day, the trip or since he logged on. Drivers get a score for idling, speed, cruise control, brake performance, acceleration and a total score. As soon as the driver performs an action that negatively affects the score, he is alerted by a sound signal and a message appears on the display.
