In this paper, the authors propose a virtual eco-driving simulator for providing efficient driving style training for drivers and non-drivers. The proposed system aims at improving fuel efficiency and reducing the wear of consumables based on visual and auditory feedback. For driver and non-driver participants in the experiment, they measured fuel economies and levels of consumable wear according to 3 types of feedback (no feedback, visual feedback, visual and auditory feedback). The experimental results confirm that drivers and non-drivers were able to achieve higher fuel economy and reduce consumable wear when they received feedback from the proposed system compared to driving without feedback.
