The European-funded project MODALES works towards reducing air pollution from all types of on-road vehicles by encouraging the adoption of low-emission driving behaviour and proper maintenance choice.
To this end, project member RACC/ACASA has recently issued a set of guidelines for low emission training, which aims to ensure the link between the theoretical aspects of the project and their validation and use. This represents an important milestone for MODALES, as RACC/ACASA’s findings set the basis for the development of a Driver Assistance app for Low-Emission Driving that will send recommendations to its users.
The guidelines are available here.
In addition, such guidelines are also intended to be used as a primary source of knowledge by any entity that wants to develop a tool of any kind to promote low emissions driving: driving schools, environmental agencies, IT companies and App developers, transport associations, etc.
