iCO2

iCO2 teaches eco-driving practices in a game-like environment to help drivers maximise the energy efficiency of everyday vehicles.

Compete with your friends in a networked and multi-user 3D simulation to drive virtual vehicles using eco-driving methods. In iCO2, the winner is not the first over the line, but the person who travels the furthest on a tank of fuel.

iCO2 is designed to test what active decisions people make to conserve fuel. The game is a sophisticated 3D model of Tokyo's road network where drivers must interact with each other as well as the digital landscape.

Users' competition results are collected and will inform real research projects. QUT transport researchers will use the data to design traffic infrastructure geared for a population of eco-drivers.
