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).
MODALES Project Coordinator Andrew Winder presented the project’s key outputs to date in the European Conference on Results from road transport research in H2020 projects on 30 March 2022. This...
MODALES is launching its Low-Emission Driving Awareness Campaign to help realise its vision of a major reduction in air pollution from all types of road vehicles by encouraging adoption of...
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,...
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.
