Vehicle emissions contribute substantially to worldwide pollutant emissions and poor local air quality. How people drive influences their car’s pollutant emissions. However, the relationship between driving behaviour and emissions is also dependent on the vehicle. Detailed emission data is necessary to describe this relationship. The Horizon 2020 project uCARe has developed a standard to publish and share detailed emission measurement data. A range of different partners active in passenger car testing have already shared measurement data using this standard in the form of augmented emission maps (AEMs). These AEMs contain emission data for either a specific vehicle (as defined by a few relevant parameters) or on a more general level. Using AEMs allows for data-driven analyses of the impact of behaviour on vehicle emissions, leading to scientific insights, tailored consumer advice and data-driven policy.
