Vehicles driving on urban roads often take a sharp acceleration or braking due to unpredictable status changes of traffic lights at intersections or wait for the green signals. All of these situations cause wastag of fuel and a low of traffic efficiency. This paper describes the detailed scheme of an Eco-Driving Assistance System (EDAS) based on communication on vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I). Under the condition of ensuring efficiency of transportation, the objective is to formulate an optimized function which minimizes the fuel consumption of vehicles traveling from the start point to their destination. In this paper, the proposal of most economical fuel consumption versus speed is concluded by comparing the fuel consumption in different driving models. The algorithm can effectively reduce the fuel consumption of vehicles driving through the intersections inside cities by using less time of computation in the simulation by using MATLAB.
