This project aims to develop and evaluate concepts to solve regulatory issues regarding the discrepancy between nominal and real-life fuel consumption of vehicles.
The institute of transport research will investigate two aspects within the project:
The project presents a feasibility study of different options to collect real-life fuel consumption data in order to feed European and German legislation. In this context, several technological concepts to collect real-life fuel consumption automatically will be identified, developed and evaluated. Additionally the validity of concepts based on random sampling will be assessed. The concepts will be tested with regard to the effort for participating stakeholders, the usability for legislation, data protection and others.
As part of the project, the options to anchor such concepts as mandatory requirements in European and German legislation will be assessed.
