The Augmented Emission Map (AEM) is a standardised data set on the pollutant emissions of a specific vehicle or group of vehicles. It is the ideal data format for personalized recommendations for drivers. Look here for an explanation of the AEM concept.
Standardized emission measurement tools like PEMS are expensive and laborious, and therefore not suitable to be applied in a large fleet. Beyond PEMS, there are several other methods to monitor vehicle emissions using standard (cheap) sensors, monitoring boxes and data channels. In Deliverable 1.4 you can read more about these methods.
News item (in Dutch)
Within project uCARe we have developed 5 videos to help people reduce emissions from their car by performing some DIY tests. The topics are: CO meter, Exhaust Particle matter, Exhaust swipe, Brake particle matter and Driving Style. Have a look for yourself.
The emission of pollutants by cars is influenced by the driving style. uCARe has developed an app to examine your driving style and thus gives you insight in how changing your driving can lower the amount of pollutants your car emits. Have a look at the video and try for yourself.
One of the aspects of uCARe is to create public awareness about the impact of driver behaviour on the pollutant emissions of their cars. To enable this uCARe developed do-it-yourself emission test methods with simple household products. The first video on measurement of the Carbon Monoxyde emissions is available now.
