Brief Description of
Research Project

In this project we propose to develop and evaluate potential benefits of new CV applications specifically aimed at reducing the environmental and health impacts from freight vehicles in DACs. Specifically, the objectives of this project is to: 1) develop dynamic diesel engine tuning strategies and evaluate their emission reduction benefits; 2) develop emission-optimized eco-approach and departure algorithms for heavy-duty diesel trucks and evaluate their emission reduction benefits; and 3) develop low exposure routing algorithms for heavy-duty diesel trucks and evaluate their exposure reduction benefits. All of the evaluations will be based on real-world case studies of selected DACs in the southern part of California.
