Many drivers do not realize the amount of money they could save, by changing their driving behavior. Since gear and RPM position is available through the AutoPi, it would be possible to create a system which assisted you in achieving the optimal driving behavior and thereby getting the best mileage for your specific vehicle. The system could sound alerts to the user, either through the build in speaker or through the internal audio system in the car.
How to do it?
You can easily set it up within AutoPi software and establish goals or objectives. In case you want to know more or are struggling with installation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Benefits of eco driving optimization
Optimizing your driving behavior not only helps you save gas money but also the mileage of your vehicle. The more aggressively and disrespectfully you use your vehicle, the more likely it is to get damaged. Some vehicles even tend to get more easily damaged if they have already been damaged before.
Aggressive driving is also dangerous for other people around you. It can just be a millisecond and you can get into a serious accident, causing permanent damage to somebody's vehicle or even their life. In addition, you will have more time to relax, focus on the road and talk to your passenger/s. Optimal driving is also ‘healthier’ for our planet as it consumes less emissions. All in all, we should all take a minute to think if it’s worth it to drive fast and risk our lives every day. AutoPi can also assist electric vehicles with a major challenge - battery monitor feature.
