Title

An accurate non-intrusive method for fuel estimation of a passenger vehicle using real-time acceleration data from a smartphone

Abstract

The conventional fuel measurement instrument needs some type of interference or contact with the fuel tank either internal or external and the accuracy of such fuel measurement is limited to various factors of the instrument such as its reliability, efficiency, repeatability, and range. In this paper we propose an algorithm to estimate the amount of fuel being consumed based on real-time acceleration data gathered in the x, y, and z directions either by a 3-axis accelerometer ADXL345 or a smartphone which can measure acceleration. Accelerometer data was collected from a used single owner Hyundai EON vehicle. Data was collected for one trip to and fro on the same route and then analyzed to find a fuel estimation constant ‘kFE’ which is vehicle model specific and which varies with the vehicle inertia, vibrations, terrain and pattern of driving and usage. It will also depend on driver response like braking, pushing the pedal, abrupt turning, etc. Also, validation of the algorithm was done by setting a value of kFE in a realistic scenario and indicating the time to refill to the driver. The algorithm will be converted into an app for a smartphone which will be available to users to input the vehicle parameters and get an estimate of fuel consumed in real-time which can aid in the decision making of buying a vehicle or help in connecting vehicles with similar fuel economy or allowing user to know which vehicle has excess fuel to supply in case of breakdown or emergency.
