Human drivers tend to under-react at first (since they are not always undistracted) and then overreact. This uneven driving profile happens to consume more fuel. By reacting correctly at all times, by modulating the acceleration/deceleration profile, by planning ahead at the upcoming traffic light or stop intersection, by generating a more eco-friendly source-to-destination route, automation technologies can save 20% or more in fuel consumption.
