Welcome to PEGASUS project!

Development of self-trained driver-coaching system based on geolocation, IoT and BI techniques

The objective of PEGASUS research project is to design, build and test a novel professional truck driver coaching prototype. The development of the prototype is based on three pillars:

  • Geo-location
  • IoT (Internet of Things) network
  • BI (Business Intelligence) system

The operation of the proposed system relies on the BI as the analytical tool for the large data volume obtained from an on-purpose built in sensors platform.

The sensing system comprises a number of selected metrics acquired from the CAN/FMS Bus of the vehicle (e.g., fuel consumption, engine torque, wheel steer angle) plus a variety of low-cost external units (e.g. GNSS, MEMS IMU, temperature, rain and cameras). The proposed system will interact with a digital map database linking the truck location to the road network.

Research is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund in the framework of the Operational Programme WESTERN GREECE 2014-2020
