MOdify Drivers’ behaviour to Adapt for Lower EmissionS

Project description

Adapting driver behaviour for lower emissions

Road transport is a major source of pollutants as well as greenhouse gas emissions. While cleaner engines bring improvements, there is insufficient knowledge on how user behaviour affects emissions from different sources: engine, brakes and tyres. The EU-funded MODALES project researches behavioural aspects affecting these emissions. It aims to decrease the amount of air pollution arising from traffic by educating through dedicated training, awareness campaigns and a driver assistance app. MODALES will examine factors and solutions in driving, maintenance, retrofits, on-board diagnostics and legal aspects, to advance an user-centric method and to test it under real conditions. The result will strengthen low-emission driving and maintenance behaviour, as well as driver and vehicle testing regimes.
