The 12 partners of the ecoDriver project, led by the University of Leeds, have been working for over 4 years on Intelligent Transport Systems to help drivers reduce fuel use and emissions.
The project's Final Event will take place on 16-17 March 2016 (midday on Day 1 to early afternoon on Day 2) at the Mercedes-Benz Museum, Untertürkheim, Stuttgart, Germany.
The event will feature presentations on the different ecoDriver systems developed (embedded, nomadic and after-market systems) for cars, trucks and buses. There will be demonstration rides in vehicles on the surrounding road network and discussion sessions on future scenarios and market uptake. There will also be keynote speakers from organisations such as Daimler, Fiat, ERTICO, TomTom and the European Commission, as well as an opportunity to visit the iconic Mercedes-Benz museum, taking you on a journey through over 125 years of automotive history.
The venue is easily accessible by road and rail (Neckarpark station, two stops from the city centre on the regular S-Bahn suburban train) and easily accessible from Stuttgart Airport.
