2019 - UK - Road Surface Condition on Truck Fuel Consumption Using Big Data
The thesis presents a novel approach for estimating the impact of road roughness and macro-texture on truck fleet fuel consumption based on Big Data.
Results show that, although the present study confirms that road surface characteristics, such as roughness and macrotexture, can affect the fuel consumption of trucks, due to the low quality of the data available, that is currently difficult to quantify. A comparison of the results obtained with the findings of studies conducted in the past, shows that there is some match in the order of magnitude of the estimates made, but this is not always the case.
