In a nutshell, Cero is a smartphone app that incentivises users and provides policy makers the data to collectively mitigate the effects of vehicles emissions in the environment.

[Graphic]

A green background with the Cero logo, featuring a graphic of a petrol pump combined with a leaf. The graphic changes to a view from inside a car. We see a petrol gauge and the needle rises to show the fuel tank is full, as a second gauge with a leaf inside it appears. The image then changes to a picture of a mobile phone. It has the Cero logo on its screen and the text reads, Congratulations, you saved £290.00 this year. Another graphic follows. It shows a yellow car on a green background, driving past a city landscape, and a figure standing next to the flag of the Philippines.

Interview with Speaker 3

[Speaker 3]

One of the most memorable challenges we faced as a team was we submitted our video and paper during a typhoon. For those of you who don’t know, a typhoon is basically a very strong storm, so we were trying to not only finish the paper and the video for the competition, but also trying to stay calm and safe during the storm.

A birds-eye-view of a city, with roads running between the buildings. Markers appear on the screen to show the start and end destinations of a car journey. A smartphone app shows the same route being drawn out on a digital map.

A photograph of a hand-written plan made by the team, showing five boxes with annotated drawings of cars. We then see a digital plan where ideas are moved around a screen and questions are asked, such as, Is the idea inclusive for all users?

What Has Your Team Learned?

Interview with Speaker 1

[Video footage]

Head and shoulders shot of Speaker 1 looking into the camera, with blue and yellow cogs turning behind him.

[Speaker 1]

We have learned that a big idea does not come from a sudden spark of brilliance, but it is a product of consistent perseverance. All throughout, we never stopped asking questions and we never stopped suggesting new ways to innovate.

[Video footage]

Split screen of six team members looking into the camera.

[Graphic]

A green background with a smartphone on the right-hand side of the screen. The phone shows the Cero app with a fictional profile. Three sections below the profile picture are seen: New Trip, My Drive Cycles and Rewards. To the left of this, two boxes appear with suggestions on how to save fuel. The image of the smartphone then sweeps across the screen. The app changes to show a section enabling the user to track their fuel consumption. A second image of a petrol station appears next to the phone.

[Speaker 2]

I am very proud of the fact that we were able to come up with an innovative solution that does not use additional hardware and is cheap enough for anyone to use. We are also very proud of our team, because we’re always there for each other.

[Graphic]

A graphic of a woman driving a car, with a second image of a traffic jam above her. There is an image of a smartphone on the other side of the screen, displaying an aggressive driving alert on the Cero app. The app then changes to show a message explaining how calm driving lowers fuel consumption.

#MakeTheFuture #ShellEcoMaraton

To help track and reduce CO2 emissions from passenger vehicles, the Alamat UP team has designed a mobile app. Titled CERO (CO2 Emission Reduction Operation), it aims to act as a platform for users to monitor their fuel consumption and reduce it by implementing eco-driving best practices. Among its features, the app includes:

  • Real-time eco-driving notifications
  • Optimal route mapping capabilities
  • After-trip analysis
  • Fuel consumption wallet for budgeting

Telematic solutions that aim to meet these needs do already exist, but the team identified a gap in the market that CERO was able to fill. By only requiring smartphone sensors and machine learning to operate effectively, the app can measure links between driving behaviour and fuel consumption without the need for additional, costly sensors, as required by many competitor products.

What’s more, with Microsoft Azure’s Machine Learning services, the accuracy of CERO could be near that of these telematic applications, while the lack of reliance on external sensors makes CERO more suited for a range of vehicles.

The team has also added an incentive feature, encouraging drivers to practice eco-driving through the app by showing fuel savings, coupons and promos that are available from partner organisations or sponsors.
