The development of advanced technologies has provided options of energy-saving route alternatives, Eco-routing choices. Eco-routing is the identification of the most energy-efficient route for a vehicle to travel between two points and is offered as a way in which drivers can reduce fuel consumption and consequently reduce the carbon footprint of their journeys. This work proposes methods of assessing and modeling how vehicle connectivity based eco-routing choices impact on drivers’ decision making when provided with different sources of information.
