Berkeley Lab’s Samveg Saxena has developed MyGreenCar, an app enabling selection of an energy efficient car model based on a user’s unique driving style and patterns.
A user installs the app and selects cars of interest from a database of almost 5,000 car models. As the user drives in typical traffic and topography, the MyGreenCar model predicts and summarizes fuel costs, fuel economy, battery states-of-charge, and other outcomes for the selected cars, enabling the user to find the car that best fits his or her driving needs.
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: Beta app available at the MyGreenCar website.
