Adapting driver behaviour for lower emissions
MODALES vision is to substantially reduce air pollution from all types of on-road vehicles by encouraging the adoption of low-emission driving behaviour and proper maintenance choice.
MODALES proposes a user-centric approach to addressing all of the challenges which on the one hand enhance low-emission practices and on the other hand suppress high-emission behaviour by researching, developing and testing a number of innovative and complementary solutions in four key areas (namely, Driver, Retrofits, EOBD and Inspection) in order to substantially reduce vehicle emissions from three main sources (i.e. powertrain, brake wear and tyre wear).
The 2021 World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems and Services took place in Hamburg from 11 to 15 October, with over 13,000 participants, a major achievement in view of Covid concerns,...
With the increased attention on the impact that transport has on the environment, drivers are becoming more interested not only in alternative transport modes, but are also often interested in learning how their driving can make a positive difference. On Friday 28 May, MODALES showed how it is working towards this in its online event “Mid-term results on the road to low emissions”.
(This event already took place) Registrations are now open for our project’s first online, FREE public event, “MODALES mid-term results on the road to low emissions”, on Friday 28 May. Click here to...

MODALES is the first major project considering the interaction of powertrain, brakes and tyres together with the driver’s behaviour, to develop knowledge and guidance for “low-emission driving”, together with maintenance and retrofit aspects.
