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 can help you lower your driving emissions and even save money along the way through its Low-Emission Driving Awareness Campaign, which provides useful and practical tips aimed at drivers,...
In 2020, the MODALES project produced a report on the legal situation regarding tampering (Deliverable 2.3, led by Spark Legal Network, available here under WP2 deliverables). Since then, our...
MODALES was present at the ITS European Congress in Toulouse from 30 May to 1 June 2022, with a project area on the ERTICO stand, a Special Interest Session and a Technical paper. The Special...
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.
