This paper evaluated the potential impacts of an eco-driving system designed to help drivers smooth speed profiles and improve traffic flow by reducing unnecessary acceleration and braking events in heavy traffic. The system provided individual drivers with real-time dynamic speed recommendations based on current link travel time data and weather information collected at local transportation management centers (TMC). To evaluate system impacts a simulation study and real-world vehicle experiment were conducted.
