Final Report - OPTO-EMI-SENSE (An Optical Fibre Sensor Based Intelligent System for Monitoring and Control of Exhaust Emissions from Road Vehicles)

Project ID: 506592
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the project 'An Optical Fibre Sensor Based Intelligent System for Monitoring and Control of Exhaust Emissions from Road Vehicles' (OPTO-EMI-SENSE). The project addressed the problem of pollution of the environment by road vehicles as defined under the Thematic Priority 1.6.2, Sustainable Surface Transport relating to the Work Programme 'Integrating and strengthening the European Research Area'. The research activities of the consortium were based around state of the art developments in the area of optical fibre sensor and intelligent instrumentation technology to formulate a system for on line monitoring of exhaust emissions from road vehicles.

The report begins with a brief statement on the project's objectives and the consortium involved. There is later an analysis of the specifications defined and the experiments conducted, explaining the work performed and the approach followed in various areas of research, such as sensing, sensor testing, system integration and vehicle actual testing. Finally, there is an assessment of the success of the project in its respective individual goals and areas of research.
