The functionality of the Active Green Driving (AGD) system is based on static information from the Electronic Horizon. This allows the AGD system to calculate and follow an efficient driving strategy and an optimal speed evolution. The control algorithms are based on kinetic energy savings, and reducing energy losses in brake actuation.

About the GAIN-Project

The steadily increasing road traffic density in Europe is causing considerable negative effects such as traffic congestion, accidents and increasing CO2 emissions. Mobility accounts for a large share of resource consumption, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. In particular, road transport is responsible for more than 70% of all transport related CO2 emissions, which increased by 30% since 1990 [12]. This trend is expected to continue in the following years.

Multipath in Urban Areas

GAIN’s solution for detecting and mitigating multipath relies on two different approaches which benefit from each other: First, through the direct combination of raw GNSS measurements from low-cost off-the-shelf GNSS receivers and the advanced vehicle motion models, unlikely measurements can be identified and skipped during the navigation solution in the positioning filter. Second, the 3D modelling of the environment is used to predict the probable multipath of each satellite signal received.
