Adapting driver behaviour for lower emissions
MODALES vision is to substantially reduce air pollution from all types of on-road vehicles by encouraging 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 3 main sources (i.e. powertrain, brake wear and tyre wear).
MODALES has successfully completed its first year, addressing the definition of low-emission factors. MODALES Members VTT, Spark and the University of Leeds, coordinated by Dr Haibo Chen of the...
The European Green Deal includes a target to reduce transport-related greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2050. The Commission intends to adopt a comprehensive strategy to meet this target and ensure...
To continue its work in advancing the understanding of the correlation between user behaviour and vehicle emissions, MODALES has launched a survey to collect data from stakeholders in relation 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.
