1. A system for optimizing energy consumption in a vehicle along a route, the system comprising:

  • at least one computer at a vehicle configured to;

    receive data defining one or more routes;

    receive one or more consumption influencing parameters which influence a consumption of an energy source of the vehicle along the one or more routes;

    based on the route data and the consumption influencing parameters, determine at least one route which minimizes the consumption of the energy source for the vehicle;

    for the at least one route, determine one or more braking strategies for implementation by a vehicle operator in the vehicle in accordance with reducing the consumption of the vehicle energy source; and

    output the one or more braking strategies in the vehicle.
