Driver Rating: a mobile application to evaluate driver behavior
The combination of data from sensors embedded in vehicles and smartphones promises to generate great innovations in intelligent transportation systems. This article presents Driver Rating, a mobile application to evaluate the behavior of drivers based on the data gathered from vehicles´ and smartphones´ sensors. The Driver Rating application analyzes five variables (fuel consumption, carbon dioxide emission, speed, longitudinal acceleration, and transverse acceleration) to evaluate driver´s behaviors while driving. To test the Driver Rating application and identify its potentialities, an experiment was carried out on an urban environment, showing promising results regarding the classification of drivers’ behavior.
