Recommendation ID

Telematics:- How can information about driving style gathered from telematics devices and other technologies (such as apps or in-car global positioning systems) be used to reduce individual fuel consumption and vehicle emissions?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- Evidence suggests that information and training can help drivers change their driving style. Research is needed to evaluate how telematics devices can be most effectively used with different groups to influence driving style and so, in turn, reduce emissions and improve air quality. Specific gaps in current research include the impact on individual drivers and those driving as part of a fleet including costs, health and other benefits, and value for money.
