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).
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 has produced a 4 page brochure outlining the project's main objectives, trial site map and key technical information. Want to learn about MODALES through graphics? Have a look at...
On 18th February 2020, the European TRWP (Tyre and Road Wear Particles) Platform organised a roundtable to gather the latest updates on scientific knowledge and mitigation actions on tyre and road...
More information about MODALES-related virtual events and/or webinars will be available soon.

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.
